Product Description

"Named for the three rocky parcels of vines from which it derives - Rochegrès, Roche Noire and Rochelle - even the name Les Trois Roches is enough to trigger our saliva glands Pavlov style! Year in, year out, the Chermette's produces a benchmark example of Moulin-à-Vent and in 2012 this holds true again. A lovely, vibrant Gamay with peony, red jube and roasted herb aromatics leading to a palate with a healthy pulse of raspberry fruit, meaty depths, velvety texture and a richly perfumed, mineral-scented crescendo. Again, no need to wait but this is bound to develop more complexity over the next few years." Winemaker's Note

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Vissoux Les Trois Roches Moulin A Vent 2011
"Les Griottes means "small cherries"; exactly the kind of fruit character that you will find in spades in this juicy wine. Produced from 15-35 year old vines grown on dark granite soil in Saint Vérand area (of Southern Beaujolais), here we have yet another convivial, lip-smacking, ultra pure stunner from this benchmark grower that La Revue du Vin de France recently described as "...a reference for 30 years." On the palate you find the subtle sense of creaminess offset by crunchy raspberry seed, the fruity acidity that we have come to love in the Chermette's entry level bottling. Flavours of mixed, fresh berries, red cherries, and bay leaf hints abound in this stylish and refreshing wine. Simply, a deliciously fleshy, jubey, fresh & light red that can't help to evoke Eric Asimov's quote in the New York Times a few years ago; "Few wines can induce joy the way Beaujolais does...".
