Domaine Rouchier Syrah is a natural, organic, vegan red wine made by Domaine Rouchier with the Syrah variety in the Rhône (Vin de France).
Located in the heart of the Saint-Joseph appellation in Ardèche, in the South of France, Domaine Rouchier is a small family estate that was solely dedicated to agriculture until 2010. Then Christian and his wife Martine started to produce their own wines. A production whose main work is carried out in the vineyard to obtain pure wines which are faithful to the terroir.
Domaine Rouchier Syrah comes from two plots, one with young vines and the other planted in 1952. These vines are cultivated on granite soils and grown under organic certification. The vines are cared for without chemicals and with organic treatments that preserve the natural balance of the terroir and the grapes are harvested by hand at the optimum moment of ripening.
In the cellar, the grapes of Domaine Rouchier Syrah ferment with whole bunches in concrete tanks with native yeasts. A spontaneous process that is then racked into used oak barrels (over 5 years old) for 12 months. Finally, it’s bottled without being filtered, clarified or adding sulphites.
Domaine Rouchier Syrah is a pure Syrah cuvée from a blend of two small plots. A delicate earthy treasure with an intense fruity aroma.
