Bourgueli Rouge Le Grand Clos 2019 75cl - Yannick Amirault


100% Cabernet Franc

AOC Bourgueil

Certified Organic (AB)

Matured in 400 litre demi-muids barrels for 24 months


It opens with a richly peppered character on the nose, with spiced black beans with some aromatic red rose petals. The palate follows u with a broad substance, a rich bed of gripped tannins providing some structure, supporting an elegant frame of floral fruit, with fresh acidity. An impressive structure, with a long tannic finish. This is one for the cellar.
