Domaine des Roches Neuves Saumur-Champigny

Made from Cabernet Franc vines with an average age of 25 years, grown on classic Saumur tuffeau-based sandy and clay/limestone soils. Manual harvesting only, coolish fermentation temperatures (16-24 degrees Celcius) to preserve aroma and freshness. Elevage between 3 and 4 months in a combination of stainless steel and old wood foudres.

An exciting, beguiling wine. A beautifully dark dense purple colour, it offers up expressive notes of pure crushed black berry fruits, a most elegantly refreshing and fragrant bouquet of black cherries, black tea, charcoal embers, boxwood, blueberries, and a subtle leafy sweet Chinese five spice complexity.

On the palate the wine is moderately dense, medium bodied but supremely cool and creamy with a fleshy texture, tart blackcurrant fruits, generous mouthwatering acids and a long, slightly stony mineral finish that has just the right amount of leafy, brambly, herbal sappy spice to combine with the suave graphite tannins. A wine with a lot of personality that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on the drinker.
