Domaine des Roches Neuves, Saumur Champigny "Terres Chaudes" Old Vines - 2008(SL-A3838)

Domaine des Roches Neuves,  Saumur Champigny

Tasting Note

Originally trained in Bordeaux Thierry Germain brings his sensibility to the noble Cabernet Franc grape to what is arguably some of the most... (more...) suitable terroir for it in the world the Saumur-Champigny appellation in the central Loire valley.The Terres Chaudes cuvée produced from 35-45 year-old vines on tuffeau limestone but with predominantly clay and limestone soils. The cabernet franc here yields a lovely red full of bright red berry flavors with that typical earthiness of the Loire. Good length and depth with aging potential.Adapted from winedoctor and jondavid wines.
