Inspired by his grand-father, Henry Leroy, legendary founder of the Maison Leroy firm who became in 1942 co-owner of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Henry-Frédéric Roch seeks to make the purest and most natural expression possible of the Pinot Noir grape from great vineyard sites. Domaine Prieuré Roch's main appellation is Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru with 0.69ha in the Clos des Argillières and 5.21ha in the Clos des Corvées Monopoly. Since 2010, the Domaine has had a foot in the Côte de Beaune with 2.16ha of Ladoix Village (red and white). The Domaine also owns small parcels of vines elsewhere in the Côte de Nuits, including the minuscule Clos Goillotte (0.55 ha), Les Hautes-Maizières (0.63ha) and Les Suchots (1.02ha) in Vosne-Romanée, as well as some appellations classées grands crus, in particular 0.623ha in Clos de Vougeot just below the château, and 1.01ha of Chambertin Clos de Bèze.
Farming is strictly organic using compost and regular ploughing and hoeing. Yields are very low for the region, and the harvested grapes, picked at the optimal stage of health and ripeness, are carefully sorted before being fermented by whole bunches with stems intact. The wines are made in the cellars at Nuits-Saint-Georges, but using grapes from the best areas in Burgundy: Vosne-Romanée, Clos de Vougeot, Chambertin Clos de Bèze…Since 1995 Henry Frédéric Roch has also owned a monopoly of the Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Corvées.
The wines of Prieuré Roch are in general light in colour in order to emphasize perfume and delicate textures. The style of Prieuré Roch is indeed one of great sensuality with a bouquet bursting with fruit and floral aromas.
Nose 하나만큼은 정말 기가 막히게 매력적인 와인이다.
숙성된 whole cluster가 주는 매혹적인 향기의 끝을 보여준..
Dinner is served!
Who has an Instant Pot? 🙋♀️
Who can't live without it? 🙋♀️
Who loves wine & pairing wine with dinners? 🙋♀️ One of my favorite perks of this wine biz is just heading down to my basement cellar under the porch & always finding a wine that will pair with dinner!
Tonight is one of our favorite Wildtree meals: Ranch Chicken Chili. Soooo good. Ask the hubs how many bowls he had? 🙊 Yeah, it's that good.
And to pair with this, I pulled this baby from the archives. This is the same wine that I served at my very first tasting a year ago. Such a crisp, unoaked Chardonnay that went so well with this dish... and the rest of the evening. Hoping another vintage of this one returns!
Want to stock your cellar with discounted wine?? I know a few good ways... 😉

It's a wild Saturday night here. I'm working on my craft desk makeover and having some wine. I went with chalk paste in Pool. Don't worry this is just the first coat it's supposed to look like that. I always put 2-3 light coats on for the best results then apply wax to seal.
Finished pics to come once complete. .

I don't drink anything else besides clean-crafted wine these days since I have to get up & mom again bright & early tomorrow. Dang, why can't kids sleep in just a bit?! 8am would be glorious. 😴💤 Cheers!

Muita famosa na França, a uva Cinsault ainda é meio desconhecida aqui no Brasil, mas vem deixando empolgado o mercado de vinhos no Chile.
Originária do sul da França, onde é muito cultivada, a pronúncia assemelha-se a “sãn-soul”, bastante diferente da escrita Cinsault, ou Cinsaut.
É uma uva que se adaptou bem na Itália, onde se chama Ottavianello, também está na África, com o nome de Hermitage, na Califórnia, onde é chamada de Black Malvoisie e por aí vai.... Aliás, essa é conhecida oficialmente por 102 nomes diferentes.
O vinho produzido com essa uva é frutado, com um vermelho mais claro, poucos taninos e bem fácil de beber. .
Acaba até fugindo daquela regrinha de vinho branco é pra beber com frutos do mar, essa uva vai muito bem com pratos de pescados, daqueles bem mediterrâneos, caprichados no azeite.
Ah! Para quem curte prêmios e pontuações, ela tem 92 pontos no Descorchados.
