Description

The power and intensity of a Saumur-Champigny wine

The estate

In 1992, the young Thierry Germain left his native Bordeaux to settle in the Anjou region. He took over the Domaine des Roches Neuves, founded in 1850 and established in Varrains, near Saumur, in the Loire. Considered as one of the greatest winemakers of his generation, Thierry Germain - Domaine des Roches Neuves produces plot-based wines that reflect with extreme precision the identity of the grape varieties grown on the estate and the terroirs of Anjou - chalky, tufa and sandy-clay.

The vineyard

Producing great Loire wines from the start, the estate now covers 23 hectares of organic and biodynamic vineyards certified by Ecocert and Biodyvin. The soils are worked using a horse and the vines keep a natural grass cover.

The wine

Les Mémoires is a Saumur-Champigny wine that stems from an 80-are clos of old vines planted in 1904, located in Dampierre-sur-Loire. The terroir is made up of flint and limestone scree.

Winemaking and ageing

Harvested by hand in small crates and sorted on the table before vatting by conveyor belt. Fermentation in open cement vats of 45 hl at a temperature of 16 to 22°C in order to extract the maximum scent. End of fermentation at a temperature of 24 degrees. Vatting time of 10 to 18 days. Matured in 25 hl round barrels and 600L barrels.

Blend

Cabernet Franc (100%)
