Domaine de Rochegres Moulin-a-Vent 2020

Domaine de Rochegres Moulin-a-Vent 2020

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast. Covering 5.2 ha (12.85 acres) within the 660 ha (1631 acres) of the Moulin-a-Vent appellation, the vines are ideally located at the heart of one of the 18 recognised single vineyards, Rochegres, where, as its name, "grey rock", suggests, the granitic parent rock is visible at the surface of the soil in the vineyards. This exceptional, distinctive location irrefutably defines the profile of this structured, fleshy wine that boasts floral aromas. The nose is highly aromatic and evocative of ripe red fruit (cherry), which evolve towards fine, floral then spicy notes, finishing on a touch of oak. The first palate is dominated by the roundness and fullness along with elegant tannins. The finish is well balanced, fleshy, delicate and pure, which is due to this particular terroir.

Wine Press Ratings

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast (2020)

"The Domaine de Rochegrès, a recent acquisition by Burgundian négociant Albert Bichot, has produced this rich, full-bodied wine. It is packed with fruit and a firm core that will allow it to age."

93 Points - Falstaff (2020)

"The full scent of fruit of the forest coulis hits the nose with aromatic ripeness. The palate has a generous, most juicy body, edged with lovely, bright freshness that lends verve to the fruit. The concentration is worn lightly and brightly. The length is marvellous."

Food Pairing

This Rochegres Moulin-a-Vent is a fine accompaniment to red meats, as well as poultry and mild cheeses.

Serving & Cellaring

Serve between 14 and 16°C. 

This wine may be laid down for 5 years or more.

About the Producer

In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in his name in Monthélie. His son, Hippolyte, succeeded him and bought the first vines in Volnay, already convinced that upstream control was essential. His son, Albert Bichot, the first to bear the name, gave the family business new momentum in the late 19th century and settled in the centre of Beaune once and for all in 1912.

The second Albert Bichot, who was born in 1900, was a pioneer of international commerce. North America, Asia, Oceania… He travelled incessantly in order to introduce our wines, which were already recognised as being among the best, to wine lovers around the world.

In the second half of the 20th century, his four sons, Albert, Bernard, Bénigne and Jean-Marc, inherited this know-how. A new era of expansion began with the construction of a large ageing cellar, a new bottling centre and winery. Our wines were available in all of the world’s continents.
