Grape Growing
The Le Rouchefer is a pure Chenin Blanc that comes from a small parcel of gently sloping, southwest facing land that extends over 1.66 hectares with clay and gravel (studded with quartz) sitting on schist. The yield from this vineyard is very low with 20 hectolitres per hectare being common.

Wine Making
The grapes are hand harvested and meticulously sorted before slow pressing and then being allowed to go through both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in old barrels for 12 months. There is a tiny bit of residual sugar in this wine which adds to its charm - Living Wines (importer)
