CŒUR DE DOMAINE (WHITE BLEND)

A selection of small bunches of grape berries are carefully sorted and picked from the heart of our vineyards. This cru is composed of Petite Arvine from the Freilles vineyards, of Savagnin Blanc from the Leyraz vineyards and of Marsanne from the Prafalcon vineyards. It is aged in large Swiss oak vats for a period of 12 months.

Tasting notes
A lively clear lemon yellow colour. An intense aromatic nose characterised by a hint of citrus, exotic fruit and vine peaches. A floral touch reveals an elegant subtle wine. The taste is characterised by its full-flavoured and well-balanced structure. Its richness, fruitiness, liveliness and minerals create a finely polished result which emphasizes the complexity of this cru enabling one to anticipate an excellent wine for keeping.

Food-wine pairing
Marvellously accompanies tasty sea fish in a mild lemon sauce. One may also savour this wine with fish loaves and lightly smoked fish. This robust race wine is a delight for lovers of cheese, especially Alpine and hard cheeses.

CŒUR DE DOMAINE (RED BLEND)

A selection of small bunches of grape berries are carefully sorted and picked from the heart of our vineyards. This cru is composed of Cornalin from the Montibeux vineyards, Humagne Rouge from the Ardévaz vineyards and Syrah from the Crêta-Plan vineyards. It is aged in large Swiss oak vats for a period of 12 months.

Tasting notes
A deep garnet-coloured wine with velvety glints. In the nose, we discover a marvellous combination of black cherry and black currant aromas accompanied by subtle hints of sweet spices. The light empyreumatic touch in harmony with the aromas accentuate its complexity and balance. The fruit dominates the taste and together with the supple tannins and chalkiness create a rich, delicate wine. The flavour of ripe red berries returns and remains in the smooth harmonious finish.

Food-wine pairing
Excellent accompaniment to tasty meat, braised beef, lamb and meats in sauce. Goes well with game too. Well-suited to hard and semi-hard cheeses.

La Trémaille

Trémaille is an original wine which has been produced by Rouvinez with a view to being able to obtain an ample and powerful wine in casks, able to be kept for long periods. Trémaille is a blend of petite arvine and chardonnay.

Taste
It has a lively yellow colour; its perfume is fruity, dominantly pineapple or even lemon in its youth. This wine brings together the fruitiness of the arvine with the strong robustness of the chardonnay; there are almond, spicy, toast flavours leaving a final bitterness and long-lasting taste.
 
Gastronomic accompaniment
It is an excellent accompaniment to shellfish, fish terrines and seafood.

About us

Company details

Domaines Rouvinez is a family-owned wine estate established in 1947 by Bernard Rouvinez, an independent wine merchant, and then expanded and developed by his sons, Dominique and Jean-Bernard, both of whom are wine growers and oenologists. The family tradition is assured with the entry into the company of Véronique Besson-Rouvinez, as oenologist and quality manager, Philippe Rouvinez as responsible for commercial activities, and Frédéric Rouvinez as managing director.

Right from the beginning the Rouvinez family chose to direct their attention to vintage wine ranges focusing on Arvine and Cornalin, which are local specialities. They have played a pioneering role in the development of blends, namely Tourmentin, Tremaille and Grains Nobles.
Since 2011, the Rouvinez family continues its quest for excellence with the production of two crus originating from exceptional terroirs: the Coeur de Domaine blanc and the Coeur de Domaine rouge, raised in 6'000 litre oak barrels.

The estate has expanded extensively due to successive acquisition of vineyards. Moreover, the wine tasting centres as well as its visitors' area have undergone significant renovations.

Rouvinez Vins is amongst the most renowned wine estates in the country and, owing to its growing popularity, now exports some of its wines abroad.
