Le Rocher des Violettes (Xavier Weisskopf), Montlouis-Sur-Loire ‘Touche-Mitaine’ 2013

Vintage ’59 Imports, Washington DC.

From thirty year old vines for a 4 h/a parcel in Saint Martin le Beau. Raised in wood. Organic-BIO.

Five years on.

Emerald.  Lacy and intricate with a spring mountain purity and the tension at five years on is a wine of combustible restraint, at once settled-in and straining forward.  White rose and white tea with lemon drop intensity and the flint minerality binds firmly to the fruit.  Now – 2021.
