August 201091 The Vissoux 2009 Moulin-a-Vent Les Trois Roches – named for the Rochegres, La Rochelle, and Roche Noire sites south of Chenas – smells of fresh dark cherry and purple plum along with charred wood (though not necessarily from barrel). Rather restrained and laid-back on the palate, it nonetheless clings with authority, offering smoky, crushed stone, and saline mineral elements in a dynamic interchange with its concentrated fruit. This is likely to blossom beautifully over the next couple of years and be worth following for 5-7.

February 201191 Vivid purple. Black raspberry, cherry, herbs and licorice on the nose, along with a sexy floral quality and building minerality. Juicy, palate-staining dark berry flavors show a refreshing bitterness, with nervy acidity providing lift. Seamless and silky in texture, finishing with very good grip and lingering floral and spice notes.
