100% Cabernet Franc. Approximately 75% of the grapes for this wine derive from the chalky soils of Les Arboises, on the famous, limestone rich Brézé hill, with the rest of the fruit coming from the mature Les Motelles vineyard, on chalky sand and gravel over clay. Today this wine is naturally fermented and aged in concrete (6 months). This is vibrant, perfumed and surprisingly deep Saumur with load of spicy, cherry pit and iodine fruit and powdery, sappy tannins on the driven, mouth-watering finish. Really opens up beautifully with food. Like the man says, "Very good indeed"

You learn a lot about a man by his compost pile. One of the few producers in the appellation of Saumur-Champigny to farm naturally, Thierry Germain is extremely proud of his, reaching into the heart of his compost to show off the smoking debris to visitors. While others are pumping as much synthetic fertilizer into their vineyard as possible to reach the highest potential yields, Thierry Germain is going the other direction, using his compost only when necessary, and asking the vines to suffer to produce much, much less fruit. The end results are stunning.
