About the Winery: Domaine des Roches Neuves is a French wine estate based in Varrains, in the Saumur-Champigny appellation of the central Loire Valley. Thierry Germain established the estate more than 20 years ago and has since built a solid portfolio of wines largely centering on the Cabernet Franc grape variety, complemented by a smaller selection of Chenin Blanc wines. The domaine's Cuvée Domaine is a blend of Cabernet Franc grapes hand-harvested from several vineyards in Chaintres, Varrains and Saumur. These vines average 25 years old and are planted in chalky, calcareous soils.
