Type White Vintage 2015 Region Loire Producer Domaine des Roches Neuves Wine Advocate - Wine Spectator - Available: 5
The Domaine des Roches Neuves is a property of about 50 hectares managed by Thierry Germain and is located in the denomination of Saumur-Champigny, in the Loire Valley. The winery has existed since 1850, and since it bought the property in 1991 Thierry has turned it into one of the most beautiful realities of France. The estate is energetically committed to biodynamic principles, with manual harvesting of grapes and low yields. Insolite is 100% made from Chenin Blanc and comes from 80-year-old vines located on lime and clay soils.
The wine is pale golden in color, with aromas of green apple, lime and honey. The palate is rich and juicy, with excellent acidity and citrus notes. Very long finish.
