2018 Domaine No Control Rockaille Billy14006773
Vincent farms five hectares near the dormant volcano dome of Puy de Dôme in Auvergne. With a degree in oenology and experience with Patrick Meyer and Bruno Schueller in Alsace, he works biodynamically to produce honest, pure and expressive terroir-driven wines. From 50 year old vines at 500m elevation. Violet, blackberry, leather and mineral drive. Wild and juicy. Zero adds. "At the top of Volvic’s hillside, in the heart of the woods growing on the “puy de la bannière”, we can find big rocks. Rock, in the dialect of the Auvergne (the one of Alain Gaudet) is called “Rochaille”. “Rochaille” became “Rockaille” and “Rochaille” evidently became Rockaille Billy." - Vincent Marie
