The estate, which is located in the commune of FontanÃ¨s, around 20 kilometres north of Montpellier, is one of the gems of this famous appellation. It consists of a single piece of land of 80 hectares, including 32 hectares of vines. On a terroir of clay and limestone scree, the terraced vineyard, with a southerly/south-easterly aspect, forms an amphitheatre composed of different plots carved out of the scrubland. Here, nature is everywhere. The place is amazingly unspoiled, offering a unique interaction between rocks, plants, vines and woods. The remains of a feudal chÃ¢teau proudly testify to a rich history linked to an exceptional site, at the crossroads of numerous roads travelled by man since the dawn of time. ChÃ¢teau La Roque produces white, rosÃ© and red wines from vines which have been cultivated biodynamically for many years. La Roque wines are appreciated throughout the world, and the â€œLa Cupaâ€ cuvÃ©e is regularly acclaimed by the specialist press. The red and rosÃ© wines are made from Syrah, MourvÃ¨dre and Grenache grapes, while the grape varieties grown for the white wines are Viognier, Rolle (or Vermentino) white Grenache, Roussanne and Marsanne. Â Sylviane and Bertrand Barascud fell for the charm of this magical place. They have owned the estate since the summer of 2015, and with their team are striving to write a new page in the vineyardâ€™s history. They are very involved on an everyday basis, endeavouring to express the terroir and produce wines which are the most honest and successful reflection of it.
