The Loire Valley is France’s greatest source of value for anyone looking for elegant, terroir-driven wines. Our collection celebrates the region’s great diversity, with the mineral-driven whites of Muscadet and Sancerre, the beautiful Chenin Blancs and Cabernet Francs from villages like Vouvray and Chinon, and natural wines from everywhere in the region. Sometimes wonderfully fresh and gulpable, sometimes serious and age-worthy, the prices are always very reasonable.
Le Rocher des Violettes (Xavier Weisskopf), VdF Chenin Blanc, 2020
Xavier Weisskopf's Rocher de Violettes is located in Montlouis-sur-Loire, an appellation that was perhaps overshadowed by Vouvray, its more famous neighbor but has recently come into its own right as source of extraordinary Chenin Blanc. This is a beautiful, classic Chenin, with notes of ripe orchard fruit, dry honey and white flowers. Bone dry and refreshing, it's an ideal match for poultry or seafood, or simply enjoying on its own.

Really delicious Brouilly . Tastes great the minute you open the bottle and goes well with
meat and fish . Highly recommend
I attended this tasting on a visit to NYC and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although most of the champagnes were out of my price range, they were good and if I could inwpuld have purchased some.

Daniel Bouland, Morgon Vieilles Vignes Delys, 2015
I have been a fan of Musar wines for quite a few years, and the offerings at this amazing tasting were no exception! To get to try the range of Chateau Musar, and to be able to do so with Marc Hochar leading the way was a real treat. The wines were all delicious, both the whites and the reds. The 2004 and the 1998 reds were particularly lush and delicious! Thanks so much for a great evening!
I have yet to open the wine
tried this yesterday at the new york store. really mineral, unique white wine.
Golden huge, rich notes of baked apple, spices and vanilla - yet there is plenty of acid and freshness to balance these ripe notes. There is a mineral perhaps oxidative element that reminds me of Belluard's wines from the Savoie - lovely. I could smell this for hours. Not cheap, but good quality - and delivers more value than say White Burgundy in this price range.
I am giving it to my son who is based in NY as a Christmas present. He will be in when he gets the gift card
The class was thoughtfully put together. Pepe, the vintner was delightfully passionate and informative- just a great class.
You didn't notice when you packed. I didn't notice when I picked up. And I can't exchange it because I only read the label as it went into a box to ship to a friend in Boston.... I'll be in Boston in a couple weeks but I still won't know how the gamay is.
so many centuries of history….& such a fresh modern attitude to wine🔥
Very good for the price and good at twice the price. High tannins.
