The grapes come from a small family estate in the heart of Bourgueil. Light and mineral-textured, this wine offers layers of spice and violet aromas. The characteristic cool-climate stalkiness is present, well balanced with the firm tannins and acidity. It will be better with more aging, so drink from 2017.
