2005 Domaine Prieuré Roch Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru
Lot 26-28 | 1 Magnum

This estate was founded in 1988 by Henry-Frédéric Roch – the former co-owner and co-director of the legendary Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and the nephew of Mrs. Leroy. Due to its unique wine label design being similar to a kitchen knife, it is nicknamed “Chopping Knife” by Mainland drinkers. The winery has gathered the quintessence from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Leroy since its birth. 

Several elements (a papyrus leaf, 2 yellow ovals, and 3 red egg shapes) in its wine label design represent vines, nature, human beings, and grapes respectively. It denotes that the owner respects and believes natural and traditional winemaking methods. No sulfur is added to the wine, allowing the natural yeasts to work, so the terroir can vividly reveal the charm of the grapes. The owner of Burgundian winery Philippe Pacalet is the former winemaker of the Domaine Prieuré Roch, which nowadays is famed for its natural wine. The production of Domaine Prieuré Roch is of high purity, rich and elegant in taste, exceptionally fragrant and elegant, but produced in very restricted quantities.

The winery covers an area of about 1 hectare in the Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru, with the annual production of only 3,000 bottles. The wines have elegant and smooth tannins, complex and concentrated flavors without losing a sense of freshness. When Henry-Frédéric Roch passed away in 2018, the market price of his wines continued to soar. The average prices of  2005 and 2010 Domaine Prieuré Roch Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru in Wine Searcher (hereinafter referred to as WS) have increased by 7 times and 3 times respectively in a few years!
