Family owned – appellation trailblazer

Domaine de la Rochette

Francois Leclair is among a group of local winemakers intent on driving up the levels of quality in the Touraine appellation. To reach this objective, he has taken it upon himself, along with those who share his vision in the region, to create a new appellation – AOC Chenonceaux, which was legally instated in 2011. Located in the very heart of the sprawling Touraine appellation, Domaine de la Rochette comprises 46 hectares of vines, producing Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and a little Malbec. Francois’ Sauvignon Touraine has been among our best-selling wines since we opened l’Art du Vin, a fact that has come as little surprise to us as we believe it offers exceptional value for money – a wonderful example of Sauvignon Blanc from the Touraine area.

Light cherry and bitter strawberry notes, with floral hint are carried through a nearly tannin-free finish in the charming light red wine.

First Exoerience was of A Lovely Light Red

I can’t drink white wine so was delighted by our first bottle. Light, fruity, fragrant and goes with any course. I then ordered 6 more bottles. Disappointingly, the first bottle of the 6 just arrived doesn’t seem to have as pleasing a character as our first experience of this wine. It seems to have an ‘edge’ to it, a sharpness.
