Tasting Notes:

Impressive effort for the appellation, with gutsy plum, raspberry, cassis, leather, spice, game and truffle notes. Dense and muscular, this drinks like one of the big boys from Chinon or Bourgeuil rather than Saumur. Drink now through 2006. 1,500 cases made.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Thierry Germain is a producer that is extremely rare in the tiny Saumur-Champigny appellation; a grower producing wine of such quality that they demand the world sit up and take notice. And the style of wine produced here is not only totally unique, but has evolved significantly for the better in recent years. In short, at Domaine Des Roches Neuves, Germain has achieved for Cabernet Franc in Saumur what, for example, Francois Chidaine has achieved with Chenin in Montlouis; wines of swaggering texture, complexity and thrilling deliciousness made with a passion and outward looking mentality that has had a galvanizing effect on the region as a whole. In doing so Germain, himself inspired by the wines of the reclusive Foucault brothers at Clos Rougeard, has motivated small legion of local growers - no less than eleven producers have followed him into organic or biodynamic practices.
