Les Rocailles “Eclat des Rocailles”

White

France

Savoie

Description

A true earthly paradise nestled in the French Alps, Les Rocailles is owned and managed by boyhood friends and native Savoyards Guillaume Durand and Alban Thouroude, who purchased the estate and négociant business from Pierre Boniface upon his retirement in 2006. The wines have never been better at Les Rocailles!

Tasting Notes: A delicate and light‐bodied white, bursting with aromas of citrus, peach, white flowers and green pear. Offers wonderful, Alpine purity, with a racy, refreshing palate and light minerality.

Serve With: The ultimate fondue/raclette wine! Excellent on its own, it will also pair well with a wide range of mild cheeses and simplyprepared fish and poultry dishes.
