Henry Roch is dead at 56

It's behind the paywall, but here's the headline:

It's now been taken down off the site. I wonder if the rumors of his death were premature?

Yes. And it does appear to be true.

Very sad !

I met him twice or 3 times, but only for some minutes, and always dealt further with Aubert de Villaine and Bernard Noblet ...

never had any of his wines, though DRC-priced. Always sad when a young person passed early.

His mother was Pauline Roch-Leroy, his aunt was Lalou Bize-Leroy, and his own firm was Prieuré-Roch.

As a director of DRC, his signature appeared on the bottles with that of Aubert de Villaine.

His aunt Lalou has been talking about selling her firm.

And his death leaves an opening for a director at DRC.

I'll bet Stan Kroenke has been very, very busy for the last several weeks.

Correct me if I am wrong but there was a rumour of Lalou contemplating a sale and she went through the hassle of registering on here to come and deny this in the strongest possible terms.
