Domaine Prieure Roch Vosne Romane Vielle Vignes 2013
A rare offering just released from the cool 2013 vintage which saw these two plots not bottled as single sites, a blend of the Haute Maizieres & Les Clos Goillote. Domaine Prieure Roch Vosne Romanée Vielle Vignes 2013 provides a majestic perfume of rose petal & dried herbs with a light filigree framework & purity.
Domaine Prieuré Roch farm 14 hectares in some of Burgundy’s finest plots, with holdings in the Grand Cru’s of Clos de Beze & Clos Vougeot plus two unique monopole vineyards, the Clos de Corvee 1er Cru in Nuit St Georges which was unified by Henry in 1995 & the unicorn plot of .55 hectare Les Clos Goillotte in Vosne Romanée which is 50 yards from La Tâche. In the winery they use only natural yeasts for all wines which is a true expression of the terroir as each vineyard has its own unique yeast & 100% whole bunch fermentation is the mandate for all red wines. The stems serve several roles such as acting as drains in the ferment which allows the
yeast to circulate & also keeping the berries whole mean there is no loss of juice before arriving into the fermenters. There is no fining or filtering of any wines & all practices are done organically with no chemicals used at any stage.
