Lap up this spicy and structured organic 2018. Bursting with black raspberry and redcurrant, it’s tailor-made for honey-baked ham. Jane MacQuitty, The Times (Dec 2019)

From sand and gravel soils this pure Cabernet Franc is the main production of the domaine. The cuvée used to be called 'La Coudraye', but the name change reflects the fact that La coudraye is only one of five parcels on the same slope. Crunchy with red 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. The Amiraults have been working organically for 15 years now and this great wine is a selection of the same plots. Drinking range: 2019 - 2024L&S(Nov 2019)

Cabernet franc as you dream of it: sumptuous yet also fresh, like cushions of summer berries with a leafy fragrance.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Jul 2020)

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.
