Created in 1988 by Henry Frédéric Roch, the Domaine Prieuré Roch today comprises around twenty hectares spread over the multi-secular terroirs of Gevrey Chambertin, Vosne Romanée, Vougeot, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Ladoix and Savigny-les-Beaune. A rarity in Burgundy, the estate owns three of the most prestigious Clos monopoles, namely Clos des Corvées (5 hectares in Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru) Clos des Varoilles (6 hectares in Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru) and, exceptionally exceptions, Clos Goillotte (0.55 hectares in Vosne Romanée) which was the private vineyard of the Prince of Conti.
Led by Yannick Champ and his team according to the spirit instilled by Henry Frédéric Roch since 1988, the estate does not use any synthetic product in the vineyard (biodynamics) or in winemaking. Our pure and sensual wines, the fruit of extreme work and attention to the vines as well as vinification in whole bunches without the addition of sulphite, have acquired worldwide renown. Each bottle is a rare taste event.

Côteaux Bourguignons Blanc
From 2011 to 2020 different kind of chardonnay where whole bunch fermented (macération), making a very special wine as “Vin de France” both with minerality and liveliness. Since 2021, the more classic wine-making “à la Bourguignonne” give this fresh and tasty wine the appellation “Côteaux Bourguignons”.
This “tri” (selection) has in effect been made by the grapes themselves hence the name Pinoterie (Pinot-tri, understand the pun?).
CLOS DE BÈZE
One of the oldest Wine Estates in France, Clos de Bèze was founded in the 12th century by the monks of the Abbey of Bèze at the present day site. Since the creation of the AOC system in 1937 the Clos de Bèze is classed as ‘Grand Cru de Bourgogne’.
CLOS DE VOUGEOT
The Cistercian monks of the abbey at Cîteaux created the vinyard of Vougeot on the banks of the Vouge in 1100. Domaine Prieuré Rochs’ plot is situated in the “terroir royal” and covers 0.6236 hectares.
LE CLOS GOILLOTTE MONOPOLE
In the heart of the village of Vosne Romanée, Clos Goillote forms a triangle of 0.55 hectares in front of the former chais (winery) of the Prince of Conti which became, in 1820, the bourgeoise dwelling of La Goillotte. The wines of the Clos Goillotte were unavailable to anyone but the family until 1988 when the property was bought by Henry Frédéric Roch.
Representing 13.08 ha from the 220 hectares of the vinyards of Vosne Romanée, the climat (plot) “Les Suchots” is classed as Premier Cru. Les Suchots of Domaine Prieuré Roch covers a plot of 1.02 hectares, which has been replanted some thirty or so years ago.
LES HAUTES MAIZIÈRES
Les Hautes Maizières, classed as “villages” it is situated at mid slope, just below the premier cru ‘climat’ (plot) of Les Suchots. The plot cultivated by the Domaine extends over 0.62 hectares at the heart of Les Hautes Maizières. The vines are around forty years old.
The name “Les Clous” was originally intended for a wine, not a place. In effect, this climat (plot), situated at the base of the hillside at the foot of the village of Vosne-Romanée, straddles two ‘terroirs’: “La Colombière” and “Le Pré de la Folie”. It extends 0.58 hectares. Some of the vines are over thirty years old and so part of the plot is being cleared of these vines in order to let the soil recuperate and reconstitute its’ original minerality and complexity. The wine of “Les Clous” will be therefore very rare during the next few years.
LE CLOS DES CORVÉES MONOPOLE
At the gateway to Prémeaux, the southern boundary of Le Clos de Corvées follows the line of a flat stone paved track, quite unique here on the Côte. This track would have been used by the monks of Saint-Vivant-Sous-Vergy around the 10th century, and was originally a roman road.
CLOS DES ARGILLIÈRES
Situated in the commune of Primeaux-Prissey at the South of the appellation, Clos des Argillières counts among 41 Premier Crus of the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation. It is part of the larger ‘climat’ (plot) known as “Argillières”. It adjoins Clos des Corvées and is distinguished by its’ steep slope which at its’ highest touches the cap rock. When it became part of Domaine Prieuré Roch in 2009, the plot was already being cultivated organically for several years and so easily found its’ place among the most expressive “terroirs” of the domaine.
Situated to the North of Côte de Beaune at the foot of the Montagne de Corton, just at the limit of the Côte des Nuits, in the appellation “Ladoix Villages”, the plot called “le clou”, which gets its’ name from “cloud”, is now part of our domaine. Le Cloud covers 2.16 hectares of which 1.68 ha is planted with pinot noir and the remaining 0.48 ha in chardonnay. Acquired in 2010, this terroir is in the process of being tamed and trained in keeping with the philosophy of Domaine Prieuré Roch. These fresh, fruity wines will delight and surprise year after year, vintage after vintage.
LE CLOS DES VAROILLES MONOPOLE
The plot of Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Le Clos des Varoilles Monopole has become part of the domain in 2020. With 6ha, it is the fifth biggest Monopole of the Côte.
