Please note, orders are processed on a first come basis. If you leave the wine in your cart for even a few minutes it might have already sold out as our stock quantity is removed when you submit the order in final, not when you add it to your cart!
You will get two emails from us with regards to your order. The first email from us only confirms that we received your order. The second email will confirm that we have enough wine to fill your order. Due to the high volume of sales there are times when the wine has sold out, but our system is still updating and shows it as available. We're sorry for any inconvenience and will do what we can to fill your order!

"Domaine des Roches Neuves has become a benchmark producer from this tiny winemaking region, harvesting completely by hand in over 30 parcels, all of which are vinified separately. While yields of most properties average upwards of 60 hectoliters per hectare, Roches Neuves averages just shy of 30, with some bottlings as low as 15."
"The difference in flavor, color, ageability, and complexity is enormous. By farming biodynamically and using only limited amount of natural fertilizers, Thierry is able to 'manage' what are, in essence, 'wild' vines which produce miniscule amounts of fruit. One can easily see the difference in the clusters as well as the leaves." -Importer
"You learn a lot about a man by his compost pile. One of the few producers in the appellation of Saumur-Champigny to farm naturally, Thierry Germain is extremely proud of his, reaching into the heart of his compost to show off the smoking debris to visitors. While others are pumping as much synthetic fertilizer into their vineyard as possible to reach the highest potential yields, Thierry Germain is going the other direction, using his compost only when necessary, and asking the vines to suffer to produce much, much less fruit. The end results are stunning."
"Originally trained in Bordeaux, Thierry brings his sensibility to the noble Cabernet Franc grape to what is arguably some of the most suitable terroir for it in the world, the Saumur-Champigny appellation in the central Loire valley. The special combination of clay, limestone, flint, and alluvial soils helps to produce wines with power and elegance at the same time." -Importer
"Situated on the left bank of the Loire, between Angers and Tours, Saumur is a historic city dominated by one of the most famous castles in France. The castle, like many of the great ChaÌteaux of the Loire Valley, is built with the same tuffeau limestone that underlies the great vineyards of the region. Tuffeau is easy to carve, making it the stone of choice for medieval castles and cathedrals. The chalk here is quite deep and the hillsides are such that the vines see wonderful exposition."
"One of the most famous terroirs in Saumur-Champigny is in Varrains, a village just southeast of Saumur. Domaine des Roches Neuves is based here and like many of the wineries in the area, carved its cave underneath the vines. While some parcels include clay and gravel, these are primarily reserved for white varietals to make either still or sparkling wine." -Importer
