WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
“The dress is bright red. The nose is very oral, on the peony. On the palate, the attack is full and dense with a nice sweetness and the pretty bitterness at the end of the mouth brings a nice freshness.” Thierry Germain
The 50-hectare Domaine des Roches Neuves is run by Bordelais Thierry Germain and is situated in the appellation of Saumur-Champigny in the Loire Valley. The winery has existed since 1850, and since purchasing the estate in 1991, Thierry has turned it into one of the finest in France. The estate is run strictly along biodynamic lines, harvesting is manual and yields are low. Vinification is carried out only in small batches and the wines are neither filtered not fined.
