    La Marginale is the cuvée of reference for the red wines of the Domaine des Roches Neuves, 100% Cabernet Franc facing south on deep limestone. It regularly arouses the admiration of tasters, as recently the 2017 vintage in the Revue du Vin de France :

    "This cuvée delivers an extraordinary chalky tracery sensation from the tuffeau. Its velvety texture gives it a sublime fullness of fruit and an invigorating length on the palate. An extraordinary expression of Saumur-Champigny. The biodynamist and outstanding stylist Thierry Germain has initiated a very fine, infused and crunchy approach to Cabernet Franc. With a singular definition, La Marginale even evokes an airy balance of beautiful Burgundian pinot noir ".

Le toucher de bouche gracieux le porte avec un éclat et un raffinement rarement rencontrés. Un vin somptueux taillé pour la garde mais déjà séduisant. ».
