The 2015 Moulin-à-Vent 'Les Trois Roches' from Domaine du Vissoux is another absolutely stellar example of the vintage from Pierre-Marie Chermette, coming in at 13.5 percent octane and offering up all of the depth and intensity of the vintage, without sacrificing any of the customary Vissoux precision and purity. The stunning nose is youthful, but oh, so promising, as it delivers scents of sweet cassis, black cherries, espresso, violets, dark soil tones, a touch of licorice, gamebird, woodsmoke and lead pencil. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and seamlessly balanced, with ripe tannins, laser-like focus, a superb core and a very, very long, soildriven and still quite youthful finish. If one wanted a prime example of a 2015 that might replicate the longevity of the finest 1947s, this would be it, as it has stunning concentration, tied to impeccable balance and plenty of structural integrity. 2022-2075.
Incredible aromas of licorice, wet earth, meat and blackberries. Full-bodied and dense and fresh at the same time. Soft and velvety tannins. Will be renamed Pierre-Marie Chermette starting with the 2016 vintage.
Opaque ruby. Blueberry, cherry pit, potpourri and smoky mineral aromas show outstanding definition and pick up a hint of cola as the wine stretches out. Stains the palate with ripe blue fruit, cherry cola and violet pastille flavors enlivened by a jolt of juicy acidity. Densely packed but nervy as well, finishing with excellent clarity, harmonious tannins and lingering dark fruit and mineral flourishes. (JR)
This is a rich complex wine. It has layers of tannins and juicy black fruits that are integrated beautifully. The acidity gives the wine a crisper edge although never taking away from the ripe fruit and structured character. Drink this Chermette family cru wine from 2018. *Editors' Choice* (RV)
