Domaine Rotier

Domaine Rotier is a family affair, run by brothers-in-law Alain Rotier and Francis Marre. It was purchased by Alain’s parents in 1975 and Alain got involved in 1985. In 1997 Francis came into the fold and Alain’s parents began to wind down.

On joining the domaine, Alain began working in earnest, applying a range of environmentally friendly farming methods, and in 1999 they installed brand new temperature-controlled equipment in the chai, and they have replanted to a higher density of vines to create competition between the plants. They then achieved organic certification in 2009.

Their 35 hectares of vineyards, on a gravel plateau at 200 metres above sea level, are planted with local varieties such as braucol, duras, syrah, loin de l’oeil and sauvignon blanc but in 2009 Alain and Francis decided to plant the little-known local variety prunelart which had almost died out and was in dire need of reviving. These are men who are proud of their heritage.
