Thierry Germain purchased Domaine des Roches Neuves back in 1991, but it wasn't until he felt the influence of fellow Saumur winemaker Charly Foucault (Clos Rougeard) years later that he began to find what he feels is his true path. He eventually converted to biodynamics under the direction of François Bouchet, who also guided top Bugundy domaines like Romanee-Conti, Leflaive, and Leroy.

In the decade or so since, Germain's wines have dramatically shot up in quality. Catapulting Roches Neuves to its current status as an elite Loire Valley address. Here are world-class wines in both red and white, made with an approach to viticulture to and terroir-expression which has exerted a huge influence on a younger generation of winemakers. The man is an icon.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 89
"The purple colored 2013 La Marginale offers a very clear, pure and intense, but also refreshing bouquet of dark berries intertwined with floral and tea aromas. Silky textured, tart but with finesse, this is a medium-bodied, elegant and well-balanced wine; it has a vivacious acidity, nice grip, herb fruit and leather flavors in the finish."
