This 50-acre domaine, situated in a superb viticultural location in the appellation of Saumur-Champigny, has been a winery since 1850. Germain, from a long line of Bordeaux winemakers, arrived here in 1991,attracted by the region’s perfect balance of grape varietal, climate and terroir, which he considers one of the finest in France. The vineyard is worked in a natural way with the goal of keeping the vine and the soil at its healthiest and Thierry has become a fully-fledged advocate of biodynamics.
Marked by cassis andblackberries this Cabernet Franc has superb concentration. The palate isdense, with fat fruit, a beautiful structure and fine, ripe tannins. A happy future for this wine which is beautifullybalanced in nose and palate.
