Clos des Rocs is one of the few producers in the tiny Burgundy appellation of Pouilly-Loché in the Macon region (it’s only about 32 hectares). The estate comprises almost 9 hectares of vines across seven parcels, principally in Pouilly-Loché. They also have plots in Macon-Loché and Pouilly-Fuissé. No chemical products are used in the vineyard and they follow organic processes from start to finish, though have chosen not to pursue certification. The Chardonnay from this appellation is slightly leaner than the wines from the neighboring Pouilly Fuisse but with lots of concentration and minerality.
Fresh and clean, with pleasant aromatic and flavour concentration. Citrus notes, a touch of earth and lots of minerality.
Sourced from a small 0.5ha parcel of 25-year vines, with a southeast exposition and clay-limestone soil. The grapes are manually harvested before a long pressing, followed by alcoholic fermentation using only indigenous yeasts followed by ageing. Fermentation and elevage are split between roughly 75% steel cuve and 25% neutral oak.
