Domaine Rollin's wines have a great purity and sense of place. The vineyard work is meticulous. They practice "lutte raisonée"—in French, the reasoned struggle. All grapes are harvested manually and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The white wines are pressed gently, and undergo long fermentations in barrel; they are then aged on the fine lees for twelve to fifteen months. The reds are hand-sorted in both the vineyard and at the cellar before being pressed. The maceration is long and the élévage is in small barrels. No fining or filtration ever.
What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
From a small parcel of Chardonnay planted in the western reaches of Pernand on into Echevronne, the Rollins produce a white of lively acidity but with a certain heft that comes from the strictly limited production levels required to achieve maximum maturity from grapes planted on these slopes that see less late afternoon sun.
Aromatic , Fruity , Minerally
Lychee, mango Hi-Chew, and a touch of banana Laffy Taffy, this wine is exploding with fruit yet retains just enough acidity to stay fresh and keep me coming back for another sip (or bottle).
