Le Rocher des Violettes, Montlouis – Loire Valley Wine Dinner
Wednesday 27th March 2019
Xavier Weisskopf founded Le Rocher des Violettes in 2005 after studying winemaking in Chablis and Beaune and earning his degree in viticulture and oenology. He quickly went to work for Louis Barruol at famed Gigondas producer Chateau de Saint Cosme. He quickly rose to the rank of chef du cave, making 4 vintages during his tenure. His love for Chenin Blanc drew him to Montlouis, where an underappreciation of this historic appellation allowed him to acquire 9 hectares of sacred old vine sites (mostly planted pre WWII!). He immediately converted his 13 hectares to certified organic viticulture and all grapes are picked by hand. The results are beautifully textured, individual dry wines with bags of personality and laser precision.
