The 58-hectare estate of Domaine des Rochelles lies in the Aubance region close to the south bank of the Loire. Its history is closely linked to the appellations of Anjou and Anjou-Villages which were, to a large extent, defined by a previous head of the family domaine, Hubert Lebreton. The domaine is now run by Hubert’s son, Jean-Yves and his son in turn, Jean-Hubert, who is the fifth generation to farm the land here. Jean-Hubert spent a period of his winemaking training at Châteaux Pichon-Longueville and Suduiraut in Bordeaux before returning to help his father.
All the grapes here are grown on finely drained slate and schist soils with the vineyards worked to achieve maximum ripeness and smooth tannins. There is a wide portfolio of wine colours and styles produced however it is the finely structured domaine reds including Anjou Rouge L’Ardoise and Anjou-Villages Brissac which The Society follows. These are plump, supple cabernet-franc dominated wines. Domaine des Rochelles is unusual in the Loire in that it also produces good cabernet sauvignon through extremely careful work in the vineyards.
