Wine Details

Domaine Amirault Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil les Quarterons 2017
It has been aged on the lees in Burgundy casks for a year to bring roundness and subtlety. The colour is an unexpectedly deep purple, and the bouquet combines black fruits and spice. This ripe Cabernet Franc shows the special intense character of old vines, powerful, rich palate balanced by subtle oak and soft tannins and a satisfying finish of lingering autumn fruit.

Cabernet Franc

Region

The Loire Valley in the North West of France stretches from the Atlantic ocean, far east and inland to the continentally influenced Sancerre. And in between there are all manner of interesting wines being made, many of which are underrated outside France..

Style

Shiraz and Zinfandel both feature here due to the ripe fruit flavours overlaid with spice. For Shiraz you’ll notice white or black pepper on the nose where Zinfandel will remind you of a spicy fruitcake, think cherries & cinnamon. These wines smell good, look good and taste good.
