Created in 1921, the Domaine de Rochebin has been dedicated exclusively to viticulture since 1972. Located in the heart of the Mâconnais, in Azé, he currently cultivates 57 hectares of vines. Mickaël Marillier and Laurent Chardigny jointly manage the estate, the two men share the same philosophy and work in the same direction...

Our story

The wines offered by the Domaine de Rochebin are wines of pleasure, to be drunk between 2 and 5 years, which develop fruit aromas and evolve in the register of freshness. two words summarize the philosophy of the Domaine de Rochebin: listening and tradition. listening, the one that men agree. Between them, the tasks are well distributed. Mickaël Marillier, present on the estate since 1991, is in charge of all the commercial and administrative aspects as well as the management of the vine's work.

Laurent Chardigny, a partner who joined the firm in 2008, is in charge of winemaking and order preparation: the tradition, the one that inspires the estate to work the vines on a daily basis, to vinify and offer wines of pleasure, fresh, with fruit aromas, etc. The principles of rational control are applied throughout the estate. All the plots are grassed and this year the Domaine has gone to HVE level 3. the vines of Aligoté, Pinot and Gamay are pruned Guyot Mâconnaise, while those of Chardonnay are arched Mâconnaise for better maturity. the grapes are harvested at optimum maturity, with higher tractors, allowing them to pass into the rows.

The entire pinot noir and gamay harvest is destemmed, directly in the vineyard during the harvest before being transported to the maceration tanks. The white wines are matured in vats with low temperature fermentation, with the exception of Burgundy Clos Saint Germain, which spends 12 months in barrels.

Other little stories

We have been able to observe a climate change for a few years now, which we must not take lightly, I have memories of the harvest that took place in October with small morning frosts, harvesting wines at 12° was really exceptional, today the harvests often start at the end of August with very high alcoholic degrees, the wines are more concentrated in colour, tannins, aromas and yields per hectare are lower, which allows us to make wines of very good quality.

We also notice an evolution of the work of the vine, grassing of the vines, soil work are the key words of our Domain
