Combe Rocher takes its name from the high altitude vineyards, in the Languedoc region, from which its wines are made. In French, a "Combe" is a deep valley nestled among high mountains. In the Pays d'Oc appellation, between the Pyrenees and Cevennes mountains are hidden a great diversity of these valleys. The rough soils and cool breezes are the perfect conditions for growing perfectly ripe, full-flavoured grapes.

Combe Rocher takes its name from the high altitude vineyards, in the Languedoc region, from which its wines are made. In French, a "Combe" is a deep valley nestled among high mountains. In the Pays d'Oc appellation, between the Pyrenees and Cevennes mountains are hidden a great diversity of these valleys. The rough soils and cool breezes are the perfect conditions for growing perfectly ripe, full-flavoured grapes.

Perfectly ripe grapes are harvested when the temperatures are cool in order to avoid oxidation and preserve the freshness of the fruit. At the cellar, the grapes are destemmed and pressed under an inert atmosphere to preserve the distinctive lovely aromas of the variety. The juice and skins then macerate for a few days at a very low temperature. A daily stirring on its fine lees adds complexity, texture and aromatics aromas. After fermentation, the wine stays on its fine lees, gaining further richness and structure.
