Domaine de la Rochette is a family Domain of 45 ha in AOC Touraine and AOC Touraine Chenonceaux. Vignerons from father to son for four generations, Vincent Leclair took over the family Domain in 2014, to his father François. Its aim: to give pleasure by producing quality wines and expressing their terroir.
The Domaine is located in the pretty wine village of Pouillé, in the Cher Valley between the Château de Chenonceau and the Zoopark de Beauval. Its terroir benefits from a temperate climate with oceanic influence and chalky, tufa, clay-limestone soils known locally as «Aubuis» and flinty clays called «Perruche», which gives wines of character.
