L’Insolite is created from plots of 85 year-old vines planted in yellow silex. The grapes are harvested in several picking sessions according to ripeness and after fermentation in foudres is aged on the lees for 12 months. L’Insolite is a sleek Chenin and an age-worthy white wine.

'This dry wine has a creamy texture, with delicious apple and citrus fruits and lively acidity. Produced from biodynamically grown grapes, it is spicy with ginger and a lightly honeyed aftertaste. Drink now.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 90/100

Producer information Born to a family of Bordeaux wine growers, at 23 years of age, in 1991, Thierry Germain left the Gironde to start his own domaine, Domaine des Roches Neuves, in the Loire valley. He believes the richness of the soil is key to the finesse of Saumur wines. Thierry Germain along with the Foucault brothers (Clos Rouegard) in Saumur Champigny and Nicolas Joly in Savenières have been three of the biggest drivers for quality Cabernet Franc and Chenin in the Loire. All being true believers in the merits of biodynamics.
