This organic beauty is a blend of Vermentino, Roussanne, and Grenache Blanc from vineyards near the sparkling Mediterranean.  The sea and the wild garrigue of herbs infuse the fruit and give the wine an aromatic complexity, creating a perfectly balanced, dry white wine with finesse.

Blessed by the sea, this wine is a delightful companion to white fish, shellfish, oyster feasts and sushi.  Serve with salt-crusted red snapper and whipped olive oil and lemon drizzle, or as a refresher with fish or meat in white sauce.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
For more than 40 years, Domaine de la Rochelierre has practiced the Cousinié method in its 15 hectare vineyard, using only organic, herbal and mineral infusions in their farming. The domaine is located in the village of Fitou, the cradle of the Pays D'Oc. The soils are a mélange of hard limestone, clay and schist. The vines benefit from a sunny, dry climate and the "Tramontane," a gentle breeze from the northwest.
Production Notes
The Fabre family hand-harvests the grapes at the optimal time of maturity which leads to a flavorful, well-balanced wine. Depending on the cuvée, aging takes place in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks to manage fermentation and preserve the aromas; or in barrels on fine lees with batonnage to ripen the tannins and aromas and develop “roundness.”
Winemaker Notes
Domaine de la Rochelierre is owned and operated by the Fabre family who have been growing grapes and producing wine on the 37-acre property for four generations. Jean-Marie Fabre and his wife Emilie, the younger generation, manage the vineyards, the vines, and the wine production with skill, wisdom and passion. They are deeply committed to organic production of the grapes and all aspects of winemaking.
Food Pairing Notes
Blessed by the sea, this wine is a delightful companion to white fish, shellfish, oyster feasts and sushi.  Serve with salt-crusted red snapper and whipped olive oil and lemon drizzle, or as a refresher with fish or meat in white sauce.
