    Product description

    Thierry’s style of Cabernet Franc emphasizes soaring red fruit aromatics, plush and silky textures, and racy acidity. Sounds pretty good, right? It isn’t your grandmother’s rustic, furry, tannic, bretty Cab Franc, that’s for sure. Biodynamic agriculture, no trimming of the vine shoots, early picking, and aging in large barrels are a few of his keys to success. Les Roches is Thierry’s entry-level Cab Franc for barbecues and general everyday gladness. 

    "The Saumur Champigny label changes color every year, and in 2020 it's lilac. This might not be one of the estate’s single-vineyard cuvées but it offers delight with its bright, ripe fruit and sense of purity and transparency. There's nothing forced here (or in any of the other Roches Neuves wines, for that matter). Very natural and dangerously more-ish." - 91 points, Vinous.com
