Amirault, Le Vau Renou St. Nicolas de Bourgueil 2015, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A Bourgueil that embodies the best qualities of the region.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a soft, aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum, white rosebud, violet blossom and red cherry.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet franc has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose with soft, floral flavors percolating throughout the entire length of the taste.
Bottle Note: 100% Cabernet Franc. Harvested and sorted by hand. Red wine made with organic grapes. Certified organic by Ecocert France SAS. A slight sediment is the natural result of wine aging.
