Domaine Carterole

Joachim Roque
Banyuls, Roussillon, France

Winemaker Joachim Roque grew up in the hills around Collioure in Roussillon, one of the last villages along the coast before you reach Spain. The landscape is like a desert - barren, steep and dusty, with the deep blue Mediterranean sea in the distance. It is known as a place with vineyards that are difficult to cultivate and have low yields.

Since 2014, Roque has been with Les 9 Caves, a cooperative of independent winemakers in Banyuls who exchange equipment and ideas with each other. For example, together with 3 other winemakers from the cooperative, he also makes the Tutti frutti Ananas wines that we also import. There is also a super cool restaurant at les 9 caves, run by Amsterdammers, so it's definitely worth a visit! 

Roque works organically and does everything by hand as much as possible on his 8.5 hectare estate. He works with great respect for the plants, their ecosystem and the difficult climate of his environment. Because that is certainly the case with intense heat waves and almost no rainfall, yet Roque creates wines with beautiful freshness and vibrancy. With great balance and character, the wines are an exciting expression of the Côte Vermeille.
