Overview

Clos du Rocher Grand Cru, a true gem in Swiss winemaking, is nestled in Yvorne, the largest wine-growing commune in Vaud. The vineyard thrives on a gravelly clay-limestone soil, a testament to the historical events that shaped its landscape. A 1584 landslide now defines its unique terroir, imparting distinctive character traits to the Chasselas grape. Backed by rock and shielded from cold winds, the exceptional vineyard benefits from a south-facing exposure.  Clos du Rocher Grand Cru is a blend of amplitude, richness, and minerality drawn from the depths of its terroir, stands as a testament to its numerous awards. Robust and suave, with mineral notes harmoniously combining fullness, race, and finesse, Clos du Rocher Grand Cru is an ideal companion to a variety of dishes, including asparagus, pike terrine with chervil, fish from Lake Meunière, monkfish, roast pork, and cheeses from mountain pastures, particularly Vacherin Mont d’Or.
