2015 Rocher des Violettes Touche-Mittaine Chenin Blanc

The 2015 Rocher des Violettes Touche-Mittaine Chenin Blanc offers up a classic nose of apple, quince, chalky minerality, a bit of orange peel, dried flowers and a just a whisper of lanolin in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and finished as a Sec, with a fine core, good acids and grip, fine focus and a long, ripe and complex finish. This is Chenin Blanc at its most focused and intense. Pure saline-infused magic.

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.

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.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
