Description

The Domaine was established by one of Burgundy’s most notable names, Mr Henri Roch who was also the co-director & co-owner of Domaine de la Romanée Conti. Since 1998 Mr Roch had acquired vineyards in some of Burgundy’s most famous villages with Prieure Roch having an enviable holding of 14 hectares which include the notable Grand Crus of Clos de Beze & Clos Vougeot. Prieure Roch also farm several monopoles including the Clos de Corvées in Nuits St Georges which has a history dating back to the middle ages & Clos Goillote in Vosne Romanée which is a rare 55-hectare plot fifty metres from La Tache. Prieure Roch has been farming with organic viticulture since its inception and produces extremely low yields in all its plots to enhance the intensity and quality of the cuvees produced at the Domaine. In the winery they employ natural yeasts for all wines & 100% whole bunch fermentation for all red wines, except for the rare Pinoterie Pure which is only released in certain years. There is no fining or filtering & sulphur is only used in the smallest of homeopathic doses at bottling .These choices showcase the philosophy of the Domaine to present a wine that is the purest expression of the fruit without being manipulated by additives or commercial practices & lets the terroir of the cuvee speak in its clearest voice.
