2017 La Coudraye Domaine Yannick Amirault
From sand and gravel soils this pure Cabernet Franc is superb. Loaded with crunchy dark berries and peppy red juice but there is a sheen of lovely polished black fruit too, lifted by spice and and fine grained mineral texture. Sleek and fresh Cabernet Franc - delicious! The Amiraults have been working organically for 15 years now and this great wine is a selection of the same plots year in year out. L&S (Oct 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Domaine Yannick Amirault
Yannick Amirault took over three and a half hectares of vines from his grandfather 30 years ago, and today with his son Benoit works 12 hectares in Bourgeuil and 7 in St-Nicholas-de-Bourgeuil. The vineyards have been worked organically for 15 years and have been certified Organic since 2014. The family are seriously talented in the cellar and not shy of trying new things - the new Malgagnes cuvée which ages in their special Jarres are testament to this. Everything is hand harvested and hard work in the vineyards means only the very best fruit is brought in. Only natural yeasts are used, with fermentations being allowed as long as they need. These wines are crisp and bright with a dramatic purity - made as naturally as possible but without having any unsatisfactory 'natural' traits. Incredible quality here avross the range.
