Domaine Des Roches Neuves Saumur Champigny

Domaine Des Roches Neuves Saumur Champigny

Serious wines are produced at this estate run by the charismatic Thierry Germain. His approach is closer to a Burgundy wine-maker than a typical Loire producer. This 50-acre domaine, situated in a superb viticultural location in the appellation of Saumur-Champigny, has been a winery since 1850. Germain, from a long line of Bordeaux winemakers, arrived here in 1991, attracted by the region’s perfect balance of grape varietal, climate and 'terroir', which he considers one of the finest in France.

Vineyards

The vineyard is worked in a natural way with the goal of keeping the vine and the soil (Sandy, clay and limestone) at its healthiest and Thierry has become a fully-fledged advocate of biodynamics.

Vinification

The harvest is manual, selecting grapes at their very ripest level. Vinification is handled in small batches with bottling un-fined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

Fresh Cabernet Franc, ideal for chilling with fresh chops cooked over coals! The basic Cuvée Domaine is garnet with purple tints, exhibits lively aromas of irises, violets and red fruits, a balanced and ripe palate, harmonious and full and a smoky finish with subtle tannins. A cool and delicious natural red, the type of wine you drink bucket loads.
