Description

For the 2020 harvest the Domaine has blended the two premium portions of the Clos des Corvees monopole. This is a small selection of the best and oldest parcels from this imposing 1er Cru site & includes the small millerand berries. The Domaine also produced the same blend in the 2016 vintage when frost devasted 80% of the harvest. The “Clos de Corvees“ was also regarded by Henri Roch as the Admiral of the Prieure Roch fleet!

The origins of Domaine Prieure Roch can be traced to 1966 when Mlle Marey-Monge leased her family’s vines in Romanée Saint-Vivant to the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti – the option of ‘first refusal’ (should the holdings of the Marey-Monge estate come-up for sale) was exercised in 1988 when her heirs the Neyroud family finally sold to the Domaine. This purchase required funds beyond the reserves of the domaine so financing involved selling their vines in Echézeaux and a smaller amount in Grands Echézeaux, but retaining the use of the land on a renewable 30 year lease. The domaine also owned several plots of vines around Vosne; Henry Roch decided that he would buy these parcels himself.
