2014 Saumur Champigny Franc de Pied Domaine des Roches Neuves

Germain took the risky approach of planting a small portion of his vineyard with own-rootstock vines, known in French as "franc de pied". These non-grafted Cabernet Franc vines were planted in sandy soil, which naturally resists the development of phylloxera, with a planting density of 10,000 vines/hectare and are pruned in gobelet en echalas (on stakes as in the ancient vineyards of Mt Etna). The soil is worked with a horse because at this density it is impossible to use mechanized equipment.Annual production 80 cases
