SAINT NICOLAS DE BOURGUEIL
2019 Les Malgagnes Domaine Yannick Amirault
|Other||Low-sulphite, Certified Organic|
|Village||Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil|
Tasted alongside the 2018, the 2019 Bourgueil Malgagnes is the more impressive of the pairing. It has greater power and concentration due to tiny yields (around 25hl/ha) and retains its red fruit character but with more savory nuances – think a little toasty/smoky. There are underlying powerful, chalk-like tannins and nice sinew on the long, smoky finish. Give this another year or two in bottle before thinking about it.

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.
