Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

Saumur blanc, Clos du Moulin, Roches Neuves - 2022

The Clos du Moulin, planted with 80 year old Chenin grapes, shares with its neighbour the Clos Romans the same limestone soil covered with clayey sand. In this vintage, the result clearly lives up to Thierry Germain's expectations. We find here the elegance of a nose dominated by beautiful floral and vegetal notes (lime, eucalyptus and aniseed). The fruit is not to be outdone, and above all the wine explodes on the palate in a memorable juicy and tractable burst. A great white wine from the terroir!

In 1992, he took over the Roches Neuves estate, previously run by Denis Duveau. At that time, the property had 13 hectares of vines, to which 6 hectares were added in 1996. His career was marked by a number of important encounters with leading figures in the world of wine, including Charly Foucault (his second father), Gérard Gauby (his winegrowing role model) and François Bouchet, who is now deceased. In 1999, the entire estate went organic and biodynamic in 2000 and 2001. The estate - and the man - continued to evolve and it was in 2012 that the synergy took a new turn, when Thierry bought the property from the Union Française de Gestion. A year later, with the acquisition of new plots of very high quality (Clos de l'Echelier, Clos Romans among others), the estate finally has around thirty hectares. The estate then became one of the references for great Loire wines, and even for great French wines: the latest vintages were acclaimed by the world's critics, and the most discerning wine lovers snapped up the best vintages. However, even the simplest vintages vibrate and move...
