From a 1.5 Hectare vineyard planted 50 years ago and within view of the estates original cellar. Soils are sand and clay over a limestone base, hand harvested and double sorted prior to fermentation in tapered wooden vats. The wine is then aged for between 12-24 months dependent on the vintage prior to bottling and release. La Petite Cave has a very distinct dark cherry and cocoa aroma. In the mouth the wine is rich with a ferrous undercut to the dark fleshy fruitiness, complex yet balanced with rich tannins that give structure and direction to the wine. Drinking range: 2021 - 2030 L&S (Jan 2021)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine 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 across the range.
