Un montlouis sec au sommet de l'appellation. D'une très belle intensité, il semble taillé pour la garde. More info

This Montlouis is produced from the domain’s oldest Chenin vines which are planted on a parcel on the hills above Saint-Martin le Beau, on the edge of the Forêt d’Amboise. This cuvée is vinified in barrels and then aged in 500L oak casks (30% new) for 11 months. This very nice cuvée stands out for its very pure fruit aromas (citrus, white fruits), its taut quality, balance, richness, and clean structure and will age with style.

Montlouis La Négrette Rocher des Violettes (Domaine du) serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Coquilles Saint-Jacques poêlées, Blanquette de lotte en cassolette, Filet de veau mariné au citron vert et mousse d’avocat.

Information about domain Domaine du Rocher des Violettes

Xavier Weisskopf established Domaine Rocher des Violettes in 2005. He was born in the Oise region in 1979 and trained as a winegrower in Chablis. He continued his apprenticeship in Beaune where he became cellar master at Gigondas before creating his own property. His vineyard parcels are dotted around the commune of Saint-Martin-Le-Beau with 9 hectares in Montlouis and 4 hectares in the Touraine AOP. The vines are mature in age and Xavier Weisskopf does not use chemical fertilisers or products. Harvests are carried out by hand and every effort is made to limit oxidation and to preserve the wines’ integrity. If you have not already done so, it is well worth trying these wines which are currently superb.
