Domaine Roche-Audran is a biodynamic producer whose vineyards are situated in the two prestigious Rhone villages of Visan and Buisson. The complexity of the wines can be attributed to the soil, which has a similar makeup to the soils in Chateauneuf-du-Pape--rocky soil of red and black alluvial (grainy, sandy soil that is a result of flowing water) deposits covered by large, round stones. We had the pleasure of tasting all of the domaine's wines with the winemaker, Vincent Rochette, here in the store. All of the wines were outstanding, and this is the second one to grace our shelves. Dark fruits reminiscent of blackberry and cassis are backed by firm, grippy tannins touched with spice.
