The must is fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then bottled during the primary fermentation while still containing 14 grams of residual sugar. It continues to ferment in the bottle while releasing carbon dioxide. The bottles rest 28 months on lees with no dosage at disgorgement.

Xavier Weisskopf founded Le Rocher des Violettes in 2005 having studied winemaking in Chablis and Beaune . He acquired some 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.All grapes are picked by hand. The results are beautifully textured, individual dry wines with bags of personality and laser precision.
