Domaine de Rocheville Saumur-Champigny Le Page

22 in stock

A super Loire Cab Franc with dark red fruits and an earthy undertone. Fine grained tannins and an edgy green pepper twist make for a long finish. Serious enough to drink at room temparture, brilliant to chill on a hot day.

The Domaine was founded in 2005 by Philippe Porché and his wife, Agnès, who purchased the vineyard and modest farmhouse from the estate of a deceased cooperateur-vigneron. And with it came vines that were already 30 years old. A long-time wine enthusiast, Philippe originates from the Vendée, but has worked for most of his 50-odd years in Saumur. The wines are made under the guidance of young viticulturalist, Jérome Callet in a modern cellar, which would not look out of place in the Napa Valley, located on top of a limestone ridge over-looking the Loire.
