Sancerre BlancLe Grand Rochoy

Born of the most deeply rooted vines in the Domaine du Rochoy, this prestigious selection reveals an elegance and character quite unlike any other. A wine with exceptional keeping potential.

Vineyard

Le Domaine du Rochoy is a 10-hectare slope, unique in the region of Sancerre. Soaking up the heat in the daytime, the flint rocks of the vineyard slowly cool in the night. Le " Grand Rochoy " is produced from the old vines of this prestigious slope which represents 2.5 ha.

Winemaking

After racking at low temperature, 50% of the wine ferments for 10 days in stainless steel tanks at temperatures ranging from 15° to 20°C (59° to 68°F) and the other 50% ferments in oak barrels. Neither yeasting nor malolactic fermentation is used. The wine is matured on its fine lees for 1 year then vacuum - bottled (exclusively in darkly tinted bottles). Only high quality natural corks are used. The wine undergoes additional maturation for at least 6 months in the bottle before being offered for sale.

This Sancerre is particularly appreciated for its fullness, its complexity and its character.
