Bruno Rochard's Chenin Blancs might be some of the very best in the region: robust, ripe, but tense with acid, they're perfect examples of the sunshine-y quality the best versions of Anjou have. This cuvée, 'Les Feuillettes,' is Rochard's freshest and prettiest. Ideal Chenin Blanc—round, clear, golden, without stickiness or weight.

Bruno Rochard


Bruno Rochard is a French winemaker that took over his father’s 30 hectare domaine in Loire Valley in 1998. He worked tirelessly to convert the domaine into a certified organically-farmed vineyard in 2009. The three main varietals Rochard works with are Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc, and Grolleau, and some of his vines are up to 100 years old.  

Over time, Rochard reduced the property to about one-third of its original size, making the vineyard much more manageable for just one person. Rochard prefers to be very hands-on, particularly in the vineyard. He is actually more hands-on than most producers we see. His dedication can be appreciated and enjoyed in every bottle of wine he makes. We love these wines and we hope you will too.
