Clusel Roch is named after its owners, Gilbert Clusel and Brigitte Roch. The name first came into use in 1989. Gilbert Clusel and Brigitte Roch started out with only a small parcel of vines they inherited from Rene Clusel in 1987.Starting with the difficult 2002 vintage, Clusel Roch began to practice biodynamic farming techniques in their Northern Rhone Valley vineyards. Their most prized wine comes from a small .7 hectare plot of old Syrah vines on Grandes Places. These old vines were planted in 1935 by the grandfather of Gilbert, Baptiste Clusel. The domaine is a true family affair as their young son, Guillaume Clusel has recently joined the estate.
