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.
Vincent Marie loves natural wine. Since 2013, He has been on a quest to make wine with as little intervention as possible. Biodynamic preparation and organic farming are at the center of this small Domaine in the village of Volvic, in the Auvergne. The transparency of the resulting wines speaks to his variated terroir, and expert prowess. Some of his vines are as young as 15 years, and some are as old as 120. They come from granite soils, basilica and volcanic bedrock.
It's rock and roll wine for rock and roll people like Vincent, who started drinking natural wine in 2003, when he had that moment that many of us share: the moment where you drink something completely new, but somehow familiar, a wine that all the other wine was supposed to taste like. That's what Vincent is after these days, and that's why we love him. Each new cuvee is uniquely his, and fits so perfectly in his little compound in Volvic, surrounded by dormant volcanoes and heavy metal music (?).
