2016 Roches Neuves Saumur-Champigny Les Mémoires MAGNUMS

Posted by Joe Salamone

For many, Les Mémoires is Roches Neuves' top wine.

There's no doubt that Les Mémoires stands as one of the Loire's grandest examples of Cabernet Franc, boasting a startling depth, sophistication and old vine complexity.

Les Mémoires’ over 100-year-old vines dig deep into limestone soils and turn out concentrated grapes that possess a haunting, nuanced complexity and noble stature.

The 2016 vintage was a low yielding one that really required producers to work hard. Roches Neuves 2016s stand out for the way they carry their concentration with seamless and intricate vibrancy. The 2016 Memoires soars with spice, flowers, earth and dark fruits, all effortlessly woven together.

Roches Neuves is one of the Loire's elite producers and to a large extent, Memoires helped to cement the domaine's reputation. These are the only magnums of Memoires in the country. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
