Loire Valley, France
A stunning biodynamic Loire red, from the sixth generation Amirault family, who have nurtured this estate. From 95% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from older vines, it is a captivating wine of delicate freshness, and lighter body. A real soft red fruit charmer. St Nicholas de Bourgueil is a subregion of Bourgueil in the Loire, which produces particularly delicate, aromatic wines.
The Amirault family has lived at Le Clos des Quarterons for over 180 years. Certified Biodynamic since 2013 the Cabernet Franc vines lie on gentle south facing slopes, capped to the north by a forest offering shelter from the cold winds. The wines of Saint-Nicholas-de-Bourgueil have protected Designation of Origin status and the entire production area lies within the village of the same name.
