Domaine de Rocheville La Dame Chenin Blanc

Domaine de Rocheville is located on the limestone escarpment of the south bank of the Loire River. The estate lies in the heart of small Saumur Champigny Appellation. Philippe Porché founded the estate with his wife Agnès in 2005, however, the vines are over 35 years old on average. The estate produces two noble varieties: Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc.

La Dame is elegant and silky smooth, this wine is made from pure Chenin grapes, harvested by hand and very gently pressed.

It is aged for 9 months on fine lees in oak barrels, in the tradition of the great white wines from the Côte de Parnay.

All Domaine de Rocheville vineyards and wines follow sustainable growing practices, the vines are cared and trained to respect the natural needs of the plant as much as possible. Grass is allowed to grow in the rows to encourage the vine roots to reach deep down into the limestone rock.

Hedges have been planted to favour biodiversity and natural defense through «good» insects and healthy, living soils. Since 2011 Domaine de Rocheville is certified Terra Vitis®, an acknowledged independent label for sustainable winemaking.

The rule at Rocheville is to hand - harvest the grapes at their perfect stage of ripeness. Since October 2013 a new winery combines state of the art technology for vinifications and traditional way of ageing for one of the best tasting experience for Loire Valley wines.

The range of wines is built as a family: each character from ”LeTroubadour” to ”Le Fou du Roi” having its very own personality, yet sharing many common features with the others. The most important of these features being the quality of the wine, which is recognized by many awards and press distinctions each year.
