CHATEAU DES ROCHETTES

CHATEAU DES ROCHETTESIf the vine were already present at XVème, it is Alphonse Roulleau (1885-1957) which directs really the production of Château de Rochettes towards the wine. Already present at Salon of Agriculture of Paris before the war of 1914-1918, it gains many medals there. Following the marriage of his/her daughter Raymonde Roulleau with Louis Douet in 1946, the tradition remains, and marketing is directed towards the sales to individual out of barrels and bottles. In 1974, it is their only son Jean Douet who will take again the reins of the vineyard. Impassioned liqueur-like wines, it will set up a work group at beginning of the year 90 for the recognition and the coding of the mention “sélection de grains nobles”. The retirement age approaching and not having a child interested by the recovery, it agrees to sell Château de Rochettes to Catherine Nolot, already owner of a nearby vineyard the “ Domaine de L’Eté ”.
A vineyard of 25 ha where the control of the vine is done in the respect of the soil and the environment (putting under grass). The wine makings are personalized for each type of wines. According to the vintages, ageing lasts 6 to 18 months.
You will appreciate this Anjou blanc Pièce du Moulin 2012, with the flavors intense, suave, very harmonious, subtle and powerful at the same time, where the ripe fruits and the fresh flowers intermingle, very accessible. The Anjou-Villages Château des Rochettes 2011 is very traditional, rich color, feels good the ripe fruits with core and the underwoods, a wine balanced very well, with silky tannins.   Excels Anjou-Villages rouge Pièce du Moulin 2011, of beautiful color deep ruby, with complex notes of liquorice and strawberry, combining tannic matters and smoothness, a wine for ageing.
