The Thorins, Grand Cru

/ 1872 /
The Burgundy villages are allowed to add their name that of their best Cru. Chambertin, Romanée, Montrachet and Thorins complete the name of the villages of Gevrey, Vosne, Puligny and Romanèche.

NB: the appellation Moulin-à-Vent is located in the Romanèche-Thorins village.

/ 1862 /
Here is a little extract from the Report on Mâconnais and Beaujolais Wines made by M. de Parseval-Grandmaison in 1862: "For Romanèche, the difference is such that ones are classified in the first class and the others in the second one, and even in the third one. First class red wines: Les Thorins, hamlet of Romanèche, provides the finnest and most delicate Mâconnais wines (...). They have lightness, some spirit, some sap and a strong nice bouquet."

/ 1801 /
"The Geography of our Villages or Maconnais Dictionnary", published by the Citoyen Puthod, in Mâcon, year 8 of the Republic (1801), mentions about the Torreins: "... here is an ancient Beaujolais proverb: every wine for meal is good, but there is no joy for meal without the Torreins. This wine's merit is to be firm and yet easy, full-bodied and at the same time it has lightness, reunites a ruby color, a flattering smell and a delicate savor...".
