Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

Saumur-Champigny, Outre Terre (amphore), Roches Neuves - 2021

Produced from an 8-month maceration on skins in Georgian amphorae (Kvevri), this rare wine is then aged for 12 months in barrels and bottled without sulphur or filtration. The colour is bright red. The nose is very floral, with peony notes. On the palate, the attack is full and dense with a nice sweetness and the nice bitterness at the end brings a nice freshness. For a first try, it is a master stroke!

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.
