"From a sloping flinty vineyard, this is an impressive wine. It is powered by its tight tense texture to give a concentrated essence of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine, with its green and citrus fruits, is tangy, steely and needing to age. Drink from 2019." (WE)

Winery Notes:
The terroir is the impression of a wine. "Le Rochoy", from a hill of very singular sharp flint stones, offers a wide array of flavours. Delicately and exclusively mineral, it signs the beauty of this wine. "When finesse and elegance mean virility."

The colour is pale yellow with a silvery glint. The wine is crystal and clear. The nose shows beautiful white flowers and yellow fruit, ripe with a touch of angelic (small candied fruit). The mouth has a very expressive and balanced freshness. The flinty minerality springs with a light smoky taste in the mouth. "Le Rochoy" beautifully extends its aromas with amazing generosity.
