Rochette

Domaine de la Rochette

Domaine de la Rochette has been in Vincent Leclair's family for four generations. Vincent took over from his father in 2014. The domaine is located in Pouille, a small wine village on the slopes of the Cher River in the heart of the Loire Valley. The vineyard is located on the sides of the river and benefits from a semi-continental climate on multiple terroirs and “perruche” (made of clay with flint, silica and gravel). Most of the parcels, especially for the Sauvignon, are in the “premiere Côtes” with a beautiful exposure and rather steep slope, perfect for natural drainage. Work in the vineyards is sustainable.
