‘While the 2019 Saumur Champigny La Marginale has underlying power and muscular tannins from its deep clay soils, it retains its light body and lightness of touch. There's red currants and the merest hint of green (this is Cabernet Franc and you need to embrace it) alongside violets, but ultimately this is a wine about shape and texture, not flavor descriptors. Scented, medium-length finish. 2021-2035’ – Vinous, Rebecca Gibb MW, 92/100

‘The 2019 Saumur Champigny La Marginale is wonderfully fragrant, pure and fruity on the nose that displays intense and perfectly ripe red fruit and black berry aromas intertwined with floral notes. Round and lush on the palate, with lots of charm and a still yeasty texture, this is a pure and elegant, fresh and structured Cabernet Franc that is lean and seductively charming. Tasted in June 2021. 2022 - 2031’ – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 91+/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.
