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".

The soil is worked with a horse because at this density it is impossible to use mechanized equipment.Annual production 80 cases
