Cote du Rhone Rouge 'Nature', Domaine de la Roche Audran, Southern Rhone, France 2021
Regular price £16.30
One of Roche-Audran's most interesting cuvees, initiated in 2014. Made with natural yeasts and no sulphites added at any stage of the winemaking process, this is a pure expression of Grenache and Syrah. Raspberry and wild strawberries flavours. A silky entrance onto the palate with a great fruit middle and length. Lovely purity and great acidity balance.Red Organic Red Blend 13.5%
Vincent Rochette comes from a long line of grape growers rather than winemakers. In 1998, he bucked that trend by investing in a cellar and the necessary equipment to allow him to vinify his own grapes, which for 5 generations had been sold to other winemakers in the area. Vincent is an ardent believer in the benefits of biodynamics, fully converting his estate to follow that philosophy in 2006. He uses only natural products in the vineyard and carries out all his work in keeping with the cosmic cycles of the earth, not only among the vines but also in the cellar.
