2018 Rocher des Violettes 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.
This is his Vin de France bottling, however all the fruit comes from declassified sites within the Montlouis appellation. The wine is pure, sleek, very dry, with classic red apple flavours, minerality and spice.
