Wine Region: Loire Valley - France
Grape: 100% Cabernet Franc
Tasting notes:This wine offers an intense ruby-red robe, dense and concentrated.
Nose: The nose reveals subtle minty nuances, red berry liqueur, and forest strawberries.
Body: The attack is straightforward and strong in the mouth, with a sensuality that immediately suggests the full potential of a great terroir.
A somewhat complex wine, both powerful and subtle, revealing great mineral purity in the finish.
About the winery: 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. The straight Saumur-Champigny is plump and velvety.
