BKWine Recommended Wine Producer: Domaine des Roches Neuves, Saumur Champigny

>> Monday, April 25, 2005

56, boulevard Saint-Vencent, 49400 Varrains, tel 02 41 52 94 02
Red Loire wine is often made from Cabernet Franc, an aromatic and appealing grape variety. But it is important not to pick it too early or else you can get very harsh, “green” and rough wines. Thierry Germain at Domaine des Roches Neuves is a master at handling Cabernet Franc, with low yields and late harvest. His wines are full-bodied and soft, almost velvety. He also makes a very good Saumur Blanc white wine.
