Thierry Germain’s Domaine des Roches Neuves is one of the more exciting new-wave growers of the Loire Valley. Originally trained in Bordeaux, Thierry brings his sensibility to the noble Cabernet Franc grape to what is arguably some of the most suitable terroir for it in the world, the Saumur-Champigny appellation in the central Loire valley.
Domaine des Roches Neuves has become a benchmark producer from this tiny winemaking region, harvesting completely by hand in over 30 parcels, all of which are vinified separately. Domaine des Roches Neuves is farmed organically and biodynamically, with minimaluse of sulphur. Beautifully pure and focused wines that simply sing Cabernet Franc and their terroir.
