Le Rocher des Violetttes, Côt Vieilles Vignes - 2019

Regular price £22.50

Xavier Weisskopf founded Le Rocher des Violettes in 2005 having acquired old vine site parcels in Montlouis, mostly planted pre-WWII, with some parcels reaching 120 years old! 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.

The old vine “Côt” (Malbec) comes from a single parcel of 1 hectare on sandy clay soils. The vines are an average age of 80 years old with the oldest plantings dating back to 1891. 50% of the wine is made by whole cluster fermentation and is aged in large oak barrels for 14 months.

It’s not the Malbec you're used to. It’s lifted, bright and electric purple. Tannins are fine - he really tamed this brute of a grape into something elegant and playful.
