Straw yellow shiny color. The aroma is dominated by notes of juicy exotic fruits with hints of pink grapefruit. The softness and elegance of taste is emphasized by a surprisingly rich range of fruit shades and light notes of vanilla. Long multi-faceted aftertaste with piercing minerality.
History of wine
The age of the vines is about 80 years. Harvesting takes place exclusively by hand in small boxes, at the winery the berries are sorted on a sorting table. Wort fermentation is carried out in barriques at a controlled temperature for 3 months. Wine is aged 8 months in oak barrels.
The Domaine des Roches Neuves winery, created in 1850, is located in the Loire Valley, in the appellation Saumur Champigny. In 1991, the famous “elite” winemaker Thierry Germain moved to this part of France and began to collaborate with the Domain. The excellent balance between terroir, climate and grape varieties attracted Germain's attention at a glance. In 2005, Domaine des Roches Neuves was one of the first farms in the Loire Valley to receive a biodynamic certificate. The vineyards of the Domain are 22 hectares; they are divided into 35 plots. Each plot is processed separately. The farm produces its own compost, the use of sulfur is minimized, and the grapes are crushed in the old fashioned feet.
