2016 Domaine Roches Neuves Amphore Rouge Outre Terre
Very nice red wine from the Loire region, produced by quality vineyard Domaine Roches Neuves . With this wine you have a nice piece of quality. Domaine Roches Neuves was founded by Thierry Germain, now a very famous 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 Amphore Rouge Outre Terre is beautifully bright red in color, floral on the nose with beautiful peony aromas and mineral. A fruity taste (apple, citrus fruit) fills the mouth. The wine is full and dense with a very long finish where a slight bitterness provides some freshness. The wine is made in amphora barrels that were kept in the cellar of the winery. The amphora wines from Thierry Germain first appeared in 2013. This Outre Terres comes from 0.6 hectares of 20-year-old vines rooted in the sand above a limestone layer in Jeune de Carrefour - within walking distance of the outskirts of Saumur. The wine stays for 800 months for fermentation and maceration in 800 liter Georgian amphora barrels. Afterwards, the wine receives an upbringing of about 12 months in oak barrels.
This wine is made from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes, and the vines are surrounded by Domaine Roches Neuves with the utmost care. 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.
This Ampore Rouge Outre Terre fits perfectly with a dinner with game dishes, beef and pork, poultry. Also delicious with a cheese platter of mild, soft cheeses.

Domaine Roches Neuves - Loire tops!
Roches Neuves winery is located in the famous French Loire region . Near Saumur, in the municipality of Varrains, Thierry Germain started his own winery there, aged 23, to make his dream come true. The vineyards have a soil of calcareous clay and sandy soil, with a chalk underlay called the Tuffeau, which is so typical of the Loire region. Because the location is south, the grapes quickly reach their full maturity. The wines of this top domain have an amazing maturity with beautiful floral flavors. The wines are generally soft, intense and concentrated on the palate. Moreover, they are perfectly balanced, full of finesse and refreshing vitality.
Thierry, who originally comes from the Bordeaux region, has great respect for the environment and nature. That is why he has chosen to use a biodynamic working method. Of course you can also taste this in the wines of this great winery, which have gotten better over the years. In 2007 the collaboration between Thierry Germain and Michel Chèvre was born. Michel, like Thierry, is a top winemaker with a lot of passion - so working biodynamically both for wine and for the vine and nature. A few years later they bought a few plots together to expand the winery.
