2018 Les Quartiers Domaine Yannick Amirault

Grapes Cab Franc
Colour Red
Origin France, Loire
Other Bio-dynamic, Certified Organic
Village Bourgueil
ABV 13.5%

Les Quartiers comes from the pure limestone soils at the top of the estate. The resulting Cabernet Franc fruit has a power and a purity that is unmatched from their other vineyards. Crunchy cassis - crisp and brisk at the same time as having gorgeous clean lined, but firmish tannins for now. This is gorgeous and a wine of real impact - which will mellow over the years ahead, but already offers so much to enjoy and contemplate. An extraordinary expression. Really impressive, Les Quartiers pulls no punches and is a wine that will really reward the patient. 4 weeks of maceration and then 20 months in big wooden tonneau. Drinking range: 2024 - 2030 L&S (Mar 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 2009. 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.
