2014 Saumur-Champigny "Franc de Pied" Dom. 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

2017 Vouvray Sec "Compte Marc" Julien Vedel

Julien Vedel is second-in-command to Phillipe Foreau of Domaine du Clos Naudin. This, his personal micro-domain of .2 hectares produces only 2 barrels per year from 90-year-old vines grown in a choicest section of Vouvray. Horse-ploughed, vinified with no malo in 50% new / 50% 10-year-old barrels.
