2013 Saumur-Champigny "Marginale" Roches Neuves

"A strong opponent of globalization in the wine industry, he refuses to see his wines be drowned in mass production. Each plot is unique and should receive treatment tailored to its needs. "La Marginale" is crafted only in good vintages and comes from the single-vineyard 'les Poyeux'. Its identity is well expressed, with aromas of red fruit and flowers together with young and round tannins." --KLWM

2013 Saumur-Champigny "Terres Chaudes" Roches Neuves

By farming biodynamically and using only a limited amount of natural fertilizers, Roches Neuves' Thierry Germaine is able to “manage” what are, in essence, “wild” vines which produce miniscule amounts of fruit. Vinification is handled in small batches then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Germain has garnered praise in the European press for his exciting wines, which are always filled with ripe, generous fruit and supple textures.

2014 Saumur-Champigny "Franc de Pied" 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

2014 Saumur-Champigny 'Clos de l' Echelier' Roches Neuves

"Thierry’s latest acquisition, the Clos de l'Echelier is a 2 ha clos on which Thierry had his eyes set since he arrived in Saumur. He finally bought it in 2011. L'Echelier is a limestone-rich vineyard that produces wonderful red wines and a small amount of distinctive whites. There is just 10 cm of top soil, a bit of sand and clay, then Turonian limestone; there is practically no soil to be seen, just rock. Olivier Poussier, the world’s top sommelier, called this cuvée the Chambolle-Musigny of the Loire. Only 1 gr of sulfites added at bottling." -- from the importer
