Chateau La Roque

Chateau la Roque is located in the region of Pic St. Loup in the village of Fontanes. The Chateau dates to the 8th Century, when Benedictine monks wrote of its importance as a crossroads for travelers. The Roque brothers gained ownership of the castle in 1259, and planted vines on the surrounding slopes. Today, the domaine is owned by Jack Boutin, who employs the philosophy that wine should be made as naturally as possible. He uses no chemical fertilizers and no insecticides or pesticides. Jack calls his reserve bottling Cupa Numismae, after a gold coin found in the vineyard bearing that inscription.

The wine is vinified in a traditional manner, fermented in stainless steel tanks, and left on its skins for 20-30 days after fermentation. The wines are aged in barrel and are not filtered before bottling.
