Le Prince - Vieilles Vignes 2012, Domaine de Rocheville, Saumur Champigny

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

I have the pleasure to share with you Le Prince, Old Vines. Finding a Saumur Champigny of this quality with attractive prices became quite a hard task because of several small harvests. The vineyard of Rocheville is increasingly known for its quality wines and its magnificent estate (we invite you to go there, I was received as if I was a Prince ...). 



At the bottom of the medieval church of Parnay, along the border of the Loire River, Domaine de Rocheville’s vine stocks are rooted in a clay- limestone soil composed of tufa. This emblematic rock of the Loire Valley has the particularity of absorbing the excessive rain of the winter, to give it back it parsimoniously during the warmer seasons.

lecepage Grape variety

Cabernet franc is the only variety allowed in the appellation. It is sensitive to heat and dehydrates quickly but thanks to the local clay-limestone soils, the grapes have a regular supply of water which allows the good development. It is distinguished by its fine aromatic, its aromas of red and black fruits and its small note of pepper that make its originality and elegance.

lemillesime Vintage

The year 2012 was not easy for the winegrowers of the region. The combination of rain and frost caused millerandage. This phenomenon delayed maturation of some berries (but not all) and required meticulous selection of berries by the winemaker during the harvest. Fortunately, the surviving berries have a good concentration. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Domaine de Rocheville comes from the union of two wine lovers who have complementary knowledge : Philippe Porché, former sales executive, and Jérome Callet, specialist in viticulture and winemaking. Joined after few years by Agnès Porché, they invested in 2013 in a magnificent and modern cellar. Labeled Terra Vitis, the estate is divided into nine parcel, with unique characteristics.
