Covering 5.2 ha (12.85 acres) within the 660 ha (1631 acres) of the Moulin-à-Vent appellation, the vines are ideally located at the heart of one of the 18 recognized single vineyards, Rochegrès, where, as its name, "grey rock", suggests, the granitic parent rock is visible at the surface in the vineyards. These vines benefit from mainly south-eastern exposure and thrive in very pure, lean pink granitic soil. This forces them to plunge their roots deep down in search of the nutrients they need. This Moulin-à-Vent Domaine de Rochegrès is crafted with grapes from different terroirs: La Rochelle, au Mont and from the youngest vines in Rochegrès.

Floral and full-flavoured, this beautiful wine exudes aromas of rose and dark wild berries with an expressive mineral base. The palate is generous, with structure that is both complex and harmonious. The finish is intense and subtly flavoured.

"A fresh but powerful red, featuring a generous and focused profile offering cherry tart, toast and wild berry notes. Harmonious, with details of spice box, mineral and smoke emerging on the moderately tannic finish. Drink now through 2025." 92 pts, Wine Spectator

"Grown at an estate owned by this Beaune-based producer, this wine is dense and full of black fruits and firm tannins. It is toasty, spicy and ripe, beautifully structured and balanced, and ready to age further. Drink from 2019." 92 pts, Wine Enthusiast

"Bright magenta. Fragrant red berry and floral pastille aromas show very good clarity, and a spicy nuance adds complexity and lift. Juicy and plianst in the mouth, offering nicely concentrated blackberry and bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a touch of spicecake. Dusty tannins build slowly on the long, smooth finish, where the red fruit and spice notes return." 91 pts, Josh Raynolds, Vinous
