Lot #239. Xavier Weisskopf Le Rocher des Violettes 2016

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Loire, Vouvray.
Score: 91 JG.
"This bottling hails from vines in Vouvray and I am not sure why it was not given the appellation. In any event, the wine is excellent, offering up a classic nose of apple, quince, chalky minerality, a bit of orange peel, dried flowers and a just a whisper of lanolin in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and finished as a Sec, with a fine core, good acids and grip, fine focus and a long, ripe and complex finish. This is very good juice." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #77, Oct 2018
Provenance: The Bijou Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $75
