An inviting and gorgeously perfumed wine from Beaujolais. Full of bergamot, blood plums, mid-season cherries and duck parfait. Pretty acid and tannins that slip seamlessly by like a running train. It is wonderful to see such a deep and broody wine from Beaujolais after the market has been a liiiiittle saturated with juicy, carb-mac, vin-de-soif...though there’s nothing wrong with those either. This is named for the three rocky parcels of vines from which it derives--Rochegrès, Roche Noire and Rochelle. Or, Rochelle, Rochelle, Rochelle, for the Seinfeld nerds at home. Pierre is based in Southern Beaujolais, and his name has become synonymous with quality and reliability in the region.
