Rochers is named for the famous “rocks” or limestone cliffs of Solutre and Vergisson. Founded in 1928 on the site of a Gallo-Roman villa which was one of the most important wine estates in the region, the cellar of Chaintre is one of the oldest in France.

Yields are kept low (45-50hl/h) by a combination of rigorous pruning and maintaining an average vine age of 35 to 40 years. Domaines des Rochers practices sustainable viticulture, without pesticides or herbicides. The wine is vinified in stainless steel and rests on their lees for up to 6 months to develop complexity and nuanced flavors.

The vineyards site is second to none, based around the famous Clos Reyssier lieu-dit.
