Wine Details



Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Great, value, cab franc! For those who are a fan of the grape. Spicy with nice earth tones yet full fruit on the initial taste.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) This is the land of Cabernet Franc, better known locally as “Breton.” While some vignerons in the area add up to 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Boucards make pure varietal wines. Bourgueil is among the most age-worthy of the Loire Valley’s reds, and the wines from Domaine de la Chanteleuserie are no exception: their 1976 still drinks well today! Despite their structure, these wines have a suppleness and generosity of fruit that set them apart from most wines produced in the area today.
