This organic Bourgueil is equally intense on the nose as on the palate and is the perfect partner to oven-roast meats. More info

Just as intense on the nose (notes of ripe, warm red berries, sweet spices and pepper) as in the mouth (velvety and aromatic), this organically-certified cuvée is produced by vinifying Cabernet Franc grapes grown at the foot of the slope. The domain uses gravity vatting, fermentation with native yeasts and a low-temperature infusion for a period of between twenty days and a month, prior to an élevage of six to eight months in demi-muid barrels.

Bourgueil Chevalerie La Chevalerie (Domaine de) serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Agneau de lait rôti et légumes oubliés, Toast au neufchatel, Chou farci à l'auvergnate.

    Information about domain Domaine de La Chevalerie

    Domaine de la Chevalerie is a leading name in the Bourgueil appellation. The property lies in the commune of Restigné, directly beside Bourgueil, and has been owned by the Caslot family for 14 generations. It is currently run by Stéphanie and Emmanuel who took over the reins from their father Pierre. The 38 hectares of vineyard are certified organic and biodynamic. Winemaking is as low intervention and natural as possible, using indigenous yeasts during the gentle fermentation process, and keeping sulphites to a minimum. The wines are clean, deep, and very drinkable and cover the full spectrum from fruity, easy-drinking wines through to more complex and structured fine wines with good ageing potential.
