2020 Cote 50 Domaine Yannick Amirault
This wine has always come from 4 different parcels on the same slope Les Sables, La Coudraye, Les Pins & Les Perrières - making up the biggest vineyard the family have. A really satisfying wallop of quite rich dark berry fruits hits the palate, with fine lines of structure that keep it focused and pure, nice peps of brighter red crunch too and added intrigue with a whiff of fresh cut herbs too. It has a sleek feel and deliciously polished depth to the fruit, totally charming and hugely satisfying. This is a wine you keep going back to. Officially organic since 2009 - the family have always followed the Lunar cycles and minimal intervention. L&S (Jul 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.
The 2020 Bourgueil Cote 50 is made in a pure, fruit-driven style that's light and flirty but not frivolous, offering an element of tender loving care on the midpalate. An early-drinking style off sand/gravel soils, featuring red berries and the merest hint of spice, and a low level of fine sandy tannins.

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.
Here's a great selection of organic wine choices that are not necessarily 'certified', but we can vouch for the organic vineyard and winemaking practices.
