Domaine Romain Roche

It's a typical tale for this family property in the southern Rhône village of Cairanne. The estate dates back to the 17th century with a certain Victorin Roche helping to establish the local co-operative in 1929. The family would sell all its grapes to the co-op of which Romain's father Marcel was president for many years. But after going to wine school and various stints abroad, Romain hankered after making his own wine, initially persuading his father to rent him some of the family's own vines to start his own domaine in 2009. Romain is a firm believer that everything starts in the vineyards and is lucky enough to have and estate with some very old vines, including some plots of old carignan, a grape which does very well in Cairanne. Now that Cairanne has cru status (it used to be simply 'Côtes-du-Rhône'), its wines are likely to have greater recognition and Romain Roche is set to be one of the stars of the appellation.

The Daily Telegraph

An unoaked Côtes-du-Rhône that tastes like a coulis of smooth mulberries and stewed damsons with an undertow of darker fruit.
