2014 Domaine Roches Neuves Franc de Pied
The organic Franc de Pied is a rich and very pure red wine with a good aging potential. Feel free to keep this wine in the cellar for a few years before you start enjoying it. The wine is ruby red in color, brilliant and clear with wavy reflections of violet and cherry. This Franc de Pied has a deep, ripe and pure bouquet of dark berries, cherries, licorice, violets, crushed stones and refreshing phenols. The wine is full, round and elegant, mineral with fine tannins. Excellent acidity that gives the wine width and a nice depth. Long and complex finish. A very justified Parker rating of 93 points! The wine has a Biodyvin label and an Ecocert certification.
The wine is made from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes from around 40 years old vines that are surrounded with the utmost care by quality vineyard Domaine Roches Neuves . Which of course fits entirely within their philosophy: winemaking with deep respect for nature and the environment. That is why this winery has consciously opted for a biodynamic method. And of course you can also taste this in the great wines produced by this winery. The vineyards are located in the middle wine region of the Loire Valley: Saumur-Champigny. In this area, located along the Loire, about an hour's drive southeast of Angers, the Cabernet Franc shows its potential for subtly layered nuances of expression. The climate is relatively mild and the southern location of the vineyards ensures that the grapes quickly reach full maturity. The vineyards for this specific wine are located in Saumur where the soil mainly consists of sandy soil.
Domaine Roches Neuves was founded by Thierry Germain, now a well-known and renowned winemaker, at the young age of 23. He did this to make his ultimate dream of making beautiful wines in his own winery come true. You can say that this was successful because the wines from this top domain have a stunning maturity with beautiful floral flavors. The wines are generally soft, intense and concentrated in the mouth. They are also perfectly balanced, full of finesse and refreshing vitality.
This beautiful wine goes well with game dishes and with red meat tartare.
