    The wine

    Cuvée Busardières is a very fine Bourgueil. It is produced from old Cabernet vines and should open up to perfection with time. It is intensely dark, almost black, in colour with a nose of dark fruit, grassy, and peppery aromas. The juicy palate has a pleasant mineral quality and a nice tangy finish. This wine pairs perfectly with pressed duck and sweetbreads.

    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.
