Le Rocher des Violettes Montlouis sur Loire Blanc 'Grand Clos' 2019

Rocher des Violettes

94 - Vinous

"The 2019 Le Grand Clos is a quiet and graceful wine. It's as if a symphony orchestra has been playing pianissimo and then they've come to a collective pause, holding its bows and breath before releasing the tension and easing into the next lyrical passage. Having been fermented and raised in 500-liter barrels for 10 months, there oak is subtle but evident in its almond pastry flavors and its rounded edges. It offers the intensity of old, low-yielding vines (an ancient 90-years-old) but it does so in a tranquil, unshowy manner. The wine finishes with a stream of flowing acidity, providing a cleansing and precise spine as well as phenolic tension offering grip and cheek-licking texture. The scented finish is long and satisfying. A delightful baby that the impatient could open now but has the structure and concentration to go on and on." - Rebecca Gibb, Vinous (Mar 2021)

Jason at Vinified Wine has broadened my wine-drinking horizons! It’s been fantastic having an expert who can guide me to discover new favourites, as well as source hard-to-find bottles I’ve tried and loved elsewhere, and delight us every time a new case arrives. Vinified Wine provides incredible value and quality for every taste and every budget. Thank you Jason!

Jason is insanely talented at what he does. His extensive travel throughout Europe and beyond to find the best, organic and often small wine producers mean you get access to bottles which you would never otherwise have discovered. He isn’t just skilled at picking out outstanding wine. He is passionate about listening to people and what they like and then really trying to find something he thinks matches their taste (and budget.) That is what sets him apart. Getting a delivery from Vinified is a real treat.
