Le Rocher des Violettes Weisskopf Chenin

Xavier’s 2019 Le Rocher des Violettes Chenin “Vin de France” is made of 100% organic Chenin Blanc grapes sourced from decalssified Montlouis vines (75% from Les Borderies and 25% from Negrette). Some peculiar local regulation keeps this from being labeled as "Montlouis Sur Loire". These vines, which are grown in soils of limestone and silex, average over 60 years old. The grapes for the 2019 were hand-harvested and the wine was fermented using only indigenous yeast. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was aged 90% in stainless-steel and 10% in large older barrels. The 2019 Le Rocher des Violettes Chenin “Vin de France” is a dry, fuller-bodied 100% Chenin Blanc with just a kiss of oak. In the nose aromas of honey, green apples, ripe pears, chalk, and clover flower are rich and complex. These flavors coat the palate on its initial attack and are followed by bright acidity leaving the palate clean and fresh.
