2015 Rocher des Violettes Touche-Mittaine Chenin Blanc
Rocher des Violettes is the project of Xavier Weisskopf, a young winemaker with a big future. Having acquired nine hectares of prized limestone and silex terroir in Montlouis, he began a conversion to organics and now creates sublime mineral tinged Chenin Blanc.
The Touche-Mittaine comes from incredible terroir – the 35 year-old vines survive by growing between shallow silex rocks before hitting pure chalk. The effect is one of bracing minerality and acidity. This is Chenin Blanc at its most focused and intense. Pure saline-infused magic.
