Clos Rocailleux

Located on the Cordais plateau, at an altitude of 300m on clay-limestone soils, Clos Rocailleux is a 7-hectare estate. The grape varieties are mainly indigenous: Loin-de-l'œil, Mauzac for the whites; Braucol and Duras for the reds.

Le Clos Rocailleux has been certified as an organic winegrower since 2021. Beyond this label, the work in the vineyard aims to promote a virtuous ecosystem. After the harvest, one row out of two remains grassed while in the other, a plant cover is sown in order to keep the soil covered throughout the winter; in spring, it is laid down to provide natural organic matter. Meadows separate the different plots and are mown late, thus promoting biodiversity. The existing hedges are of course preserved and a project to plant fruit trees is underway.

This philosophy is also reflected in the cellar: the wines are vinified naturally (indigenous yeasts) with a minimum of intervention in order to preserve all the authenticity of the grape varieties and the soils.

Luc Bontemps, a former journalist, is now the winemaker and owner of the estate. He began his career in the Loire, the land of his roots. After a year's work experience at the agricultural college in Amboise and at Grégory Leclerc's Chahut et Prodiges estate, he went to the Cinq Peyres estate, in the Tarn, to complete his training. It was the first time he set foot in the region. He was immediately seduced by the beauty of the landscape, the hospitality of its inhabitants and the mildness of its climate. Two years later, he moved to Clos Rocailleux with his partner, Lucinda Terreyre, who in turn trained as a winemaker.
