Keep it natural, baby.
At the top of Volvic’s hillside, in the heart of the woods growing on the “puy de la bannière”, we can find big rocks. Rock, in the dialect of the Auvergne (the one of Alain Gaudet) is called “Rochaille”. “Rochaille” became “Rockaille” and “Rochaille” evidently became Rockaille Billy.
Whole bunches in a fibreglass vat. Grape trampling to make space in the vat, maceration of whole bunches in the juice. 4 punch-downs, devatting, pressing and blending of both vats with the free-run and pressed juice. Maceration of 3 weeks. No added chemical inputs.
No Control, a vineyard estate currently converting to an all organic agriculture. They are based in the north of the Puy de Dôme, in Volvic more precisely, and producer of living and natural wines. No Control consists of 5 hectares of vines, where one can find several grape varieties : gamay, pinot noir, syrah, chardonnay, sauvignon, sylvaner and pinot auxerrois. This allows them to make between 5 and 7 cuvees. No Control also has an impressive diverse range of terroirs born from recent and former volcanic activity. This gives the wines typical features and a specific mineral taste.
