Domaine Roche-Audran Côtes du Rhône Cuvée César White 2022

Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Clairette, Bourboulenc

A north-east/north-west slope between Rasteau and Cairanne at an altitude of 180 to 250 m, brings good acidity to the wine. Soils of clay-limestone covered with pebbles.

A classy biodynamic white wine that is fermented and aged in new and used demi-muid barrels. Roche-Audran’s cool north-facing terroir brings precious acidity in an otherwise hot Southern Rhône climate.

Bright pale yellow in colour. A very expressive first impression of ripe peaches, citrus and toasted nut notes is followed by a lovely minerality. Medium-bodied in the mouth with an attractive sweetness at the beginning that is then followed by a lovely balance between freshness, fruit and minerality. The fruit flavours persist right through the taste and finish with notes of toast and citrus fruit. A beautifully balanced white with a good acidity that harmoniously integrates the oaks and balances the fruit. The wine can be drunk but will be even better between 3 and 5 years.


Shipping costs are calculated per box of 6 bottles. Each box can contain a mixed selection of wines.

Producer profile

The Rochette family has been cultivating vines for five generations. The current owner, Vincent Rochette was the first to ferment their grapes when he built a cellar in 1998. His father had embraced organic methods, and Vincent was always convinced that wines should be grown as naturally as possible. He believes that healthy, vibrant vines that are cultivated without chemicals will, over time, strengthen their own defences against illness and produce grapes that are less prone to problems in the cellar, thus requiring less intervention in the wine making process. In this vein, Vincent has always endeavoured to pursue the most natural wine-growing methods possible. Right from the start, Vincent embraced the extra dimension that biodynamic practices could bring and the domaine was finally certified Biodynamic in 2009. Organic and Biodynamic conversion for certification is relatively short at three and five years respectively. I am of the firm view that it takes much longer for these natural approaches in the vineyards to feed through into the quality of the wines. The reds are either fermented and aged in concrete, or very large upright foudres. There is no oak flavour influence on the red wines. Vincent adds very little sulphites to his wines and now grows two wines with no sulphites added – “Nature” and “Les Sables”.
