2015 Saumur Champigny Rouge “Les Roches”

Domaine des Roches Neuves

2015 Saumur Champigny <em>Rouge</em> “Les Roches” Domaine des Roches Neuves - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


I recall my first-ever sip of one of Thierry Germain’s wines, in a hip Paris restaurant not too long ago. Thunderstruck, my dining partner and I locked eyes. I don’t know about her, but I began to salivate uncontrollably, while my head filled with existential questions about life, love, wine, and my lifelong love of wine. As you’ll see with this Cabernet Franc, Thierry’s cuvées provide the rare combination of intellectual stimulation with unbridled sensory gratification—they are hard not to like, no matter how much you choose to nerd out. This red, with its perfect balance of  crisply defined red fruit, fresh acidity, and silky tannins, makes for a great introduction to the domaine. –Anthony Lynch
