Domaine des Roches Neuves (Thierry Germain)

Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2015

The 15' cuvee of this wine is absolutely delicious and offers much complexity for the price. Ripe red fruit core with pleasant green, herbal, and smoky notes. I think my experience with previous vintages of this wine fell in the category of unpleasant Cab Franc, so this is a much welcome change. Beautiful tension between rusticity and freshness. Yum!

From Kermit Lynch:
• 100% de-stemmed
• Fermentation in stainless steel tank for 8 to 10 days
• Light pumpovers during fermentation—meant to infuse the grapes not extract them
• Aged in stainless steel and wood tanks, on fine lees, without sulfur, for 3 to 4 months
• Communes: Chaintres de Varrains and Saumur

Peppery, lots of minerals, crisp and oddly refreshing. Full without overpowering. — a year ago

Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2017

Seductive aromatics of ripe damson plums and black currants, with a floral accent (violets?) and some pencil shavings and green peppers. A touch of cloves, too. Quite uplifting and elegant. On the palate this shows nice tension between the great purity of fruit paired with juicy acidity and the firm tannins & earthy undertones. No greenness nor astringency so often found in Loire Cab Francs. A lovely wine. — 5 years ago

Domaine des Chaintres Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

An unusually golden-hued Sancerre. Tons of steely minerality accents the delightfully acidic stone and citrus fruit. — 6 years ago
