Le Grand Rochoy is made exclusively from the oldest vines on a 2.5 hectare plot on the Domaine du Rochoy hillside. This is unique in the region of Sancerre for its flinty soil, which soaks up heat in the daytime and slowly re-radiates it at night. This wine is a pure and elegant expression of its origin, and reveals an elegance and character quite unlike any other. It has exceptional keeping potential, of up to 10 years from vintage.
Excellent with seafood, fish or white meat.
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.
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.
