(26) Drôme

Located halfway between Valence and Montélimar in the Rhone Valley, the vineyards of CHATEAU LA ROLIERE belong to the Brézème terroir. This name is reserved for wines produced on a terroir overlooking the Drôme, in the communes of Livron-sur-Drôme and Allex. Only 8 winegrowers produce this Côtes-du-Rhône Brézème PDO, which has therefore remained very confidential. The grape varieties are Syrah and a little Grenache for the blacks, and Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier for the whites.
The 10 hectares of vines, entirely enclosed by walls, are planted on a valley facing south-south-west and benefit from a continental climate with a Mediterranean influence. The soil is composed of silt and clay, and covered with rolled pebbles from the Rhône. Property of the Marchal family, it is now cultivated with the greatest care by our winegrower Mathieu, who has been in charge of it for more than 5 years.

Our story

A family story - A unique terroirMaurice Marchal has a large family...very large, with 10 girls and 1 boy! We are in 1976. At the time, he was looking for a house big enough to accommodate all his descendants. 40 years later, the adventure continues: the children and grandchildren, 190 in number today, have taken over... In the meantime, numerous developments and investments have enabled the development and continuous improvement of the quality of the wines. The 10 hectares of vines produce white, red and rosé wines. Pear trees and kiwis are also still grown here.

Other little stories

The vineyard would have been planted in 1824 and started producing around 1830. It was then a well-maintained estate, efficiently drained by a judicious system of ring ditches, with "magnificent mulberry tree plantations", a "beautiful walled vineyard" and a magnificent oak wood which protects the "old historic manor house" to the north. In the 1850's the estate of La Rolière was known for its dry white wine which when it has aged sufficiently, can be regarded as the analogue of the Xérès, the French Xeres.
