Rocheyron is the result of a friendly and professional partnership between Sylvio Denz (Faugères and Lafaurie-Peyraguey) and Peter Sisseck (Pingus). Since 2010, they have been investing in this small 8-hectare vineyard, located entirely on the asteriated limestone plateau characteristic of Saint-Émilion: tilling the soil, conversion to organic farming (certified in 2020), gentle vinification at low temperatures... Rocheyron is constantly progressing, and each year offers wines with an unequalled tannic softness.

Dupont (Le Point) :
Galloni (Vinous) : 86-88/100 « The 2019 Rocheyron is a soft, pleasant, easy-going wine. Inky dark cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice and spice all develop with a bit of air. It would be nice to see a bit more mid-palate and overall body. »
Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, so much freshness and tension bursting towards the finish that you want to immediately return for another sip. The best Rocheyron thus far. »
