Domaine de Rochebin is situated at an altitude of 1,476 feet above sea level on a hilltop overlooking the Saône plain close to the town of Azé. The wooded hillside of Azé borders the village of Cluny whose abbey was one of the leading sites of medieval Christianity. Most of the 115 acres of Rochebin's vineyards came from the abbey's former properties which have been farmed since the year 1000. Since 1921, the Marillier family have been stewards of the property with ownership passing from father to son. In 1991, Mikaël Marilier, and enthusiast producer with a promising future, assumed the helm from his father, Jean Pierre. The diversity of the terroir with Jurassic marl and limestone soils allow all of the prestigious Burgundy grape varieties; Chardonnay, Gamay, Pinot Noir and Bourgogne Aligoté. Production is small, just 8,000 cases of red, 7,000 cases of white and 1,000 cases of rosé are made each year.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Red Bourgogne is very lively on the palate and well structured with a supple, smooth backbone. Its tannins and fruit have a tête‐à‐tête wherein the wine’s chewy character balances the implosion of its secondary aromas. It has a fine, elegant personality and a fluid, light structure on the palate.
Vineyard Notes
Located in the heart of the Mâconnais, the ROCHEBIN estate is situated at an altitude of 450m on a hill overlooking the Saône plain, close to Azé, a village known for its prehistoric caves.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with salads, poultry, or beef. Serving temperature : 57 ‐ 62°F
