Information about wine

The Côtes du Rhône blanc, the basic wine of Vincent Rochette, is a cuvee of 60 % Grenache blanc, 20 % Viognier as well as 10 % Clairette and Bourboulenc each. The 20 to 30 year old vines are located in Buisson in a four hectare vineyard characterized by clay and limestone in the subsoil and alluvial alluvium and gravel in the topsoil. The yield is around 30 hl per hectare. The wine is fermented spontaneously and matures to one third in wood and to two thirds in stainless steel.

Color

pale straw yellow

Nose

This white cuvée from Vincent Rochette shows an elegant and at the same time expressive nose of white and yellow fruits such as pears, Reineclauden as well as pears and brings at the same time a breath of exoticism which reminds of mango and pineapple. The aroma is rounded off by aniseed and cedar lemons. The wine appears bright, light, spicy, but gentle.

Palate

Already with the first sip the Côtes du Rhône blanc the palate silky. The wine has power and spice, as you would expect from a southern white wine, but remains precise and fresh thanks to Vincent Rochette's way of working. The acidity seems as silky as the very light tannin. Along with the bright stone fruit, it's again citrus notes that lead the way here, plus hints of lanolin, beeswax, fennel seed and licorice. This is a very nice table wine to southern dishes.
