Amirault, Les Gravilices St. Nicolas de Bourgueil 2015, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A Bourgueil that abounds with concentration and Loire florality.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum, graphite and some bramble and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied cabernet franc has a concentrated midpalate with some traces of chalk supported by medium-plus acidity ultimately completing with a medium-plus finish.
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.
