The wait is over.
Eric first discovered Montcrochet nearly nine months ago at Herve Villemade’s table at Penitentes, and kept returning to taste this stunning wine. Since then, it was one of those, “gotta have it moments,” and after months and months of emails, fits and starts, and waiting, we finally got the goods. This Domestique exclusive just tastes like something special. Seriously we tasted it blind and thought it was some hypebeast Jura Savagnin or a dry AF Chenin. Regardless, it tastes Swank with a capital “s,” and is exactly the kind of bottle we want to come home to during these colder months.
- Hervé Villemade took over his father’s plot of vines in 1995, and developed a very serious allergy to sulfur in 1997. During the year 2000 he decided to convert his property over to organic viticulture.
