🍾 Saumur L'Insolite
🖼️ Saumur, Loire
🏡 Domaine des Roches Neuves
🍇 Chenin Blanc 100%
🛁 From a selection of 3 vineyards, one of which is very rich in limestone, one further south towards Anjou with a clay composition and one that is over 100 years old in Saumur. Harvested by hand in boxes. Alcoholic fermentation in 12 hl oval barrels to preserve all the minerality. Pneumatic pressing for 4 hours then fermentation for 4 months.
👃🏻 The nose combines concentration, freshness, generosity and power and reveals subtle fruity, floral and vegetal hints. Then white-fleshed fruit, citrus, verbena and lime on the finish.
👅 In the mouth it is clean and velvety, the freshness is present and draws the contours of the material guaranteeing the aromatic identity of the flavours. Rich, long and energetic finish
👍🏻 Serving temperature 14°.
😍 Unusual and Delicious

Domaine Des Roches Neuves was born thanks to the incredible tenacity and will of Thierry German who, originally from Bordeaux, moved to Saumur in the early 1990s where he met his mentor and spiritual father Charly Foucault of Clos Rougeard.
Thierry Germain was one of the 2.0 pioneers of the biodynamic movement in the whole area, and is now rightfully among the best biodynamic farms in France.
The Domaine offers many variations on the Saumur Champigny appellation, the main grape variety being Cabernet Franc, but beware, you could easily fall in love with an unusual wine made from Chenin Blanc, called l'Insolite, the house white.
