The name of the domaine that makes this delicious red is 'Roches Neuves', but on the label is the name of the man behind it - Thierry Germain. Thierry is one of the great artisan winemakers of the Loire. Working biodynamically, he makes a bewildering array of wines from a multitude of vineyards and soil types. This is his 'basic' Saumur Champigny. It's a fresh, flavoursome red with dark fruit flavours peppery spice.
