A Wine from Thierry Germain


Another quick note for tonight.  This wine was recently recommended to me.  I enjoyed it for its interesting texture and red fruit flavors.  It really needs a few years in the cellar so be sure to stash a few bottles away.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Domaine des Roches Neuves, Saumur-Champigny – $19
Imported by Elite Wines.  This wine is 100% Cabernet Franc sourced from 25+ vineyards. It was fermented with indigenous yeasts then aged for seven months in tank.  Alcohol 13%.  The color is light to medium black cherry with ruby.  The light nose was scented with pepper and raspberry.  Tasted over two nights this wine is finely textured from tannins.  There are bright, lithe fruit mixed with orange citrus acidity and citric tannins.  The flavors are tart in the middle with salivating acidity, and cinnamon spiced tannins.  Though light in weight it is full in the mouth.  With air more red fruit develops in the middle.  Needs a few years.  **(*) 2014-2017.
