about this product
Father and son Yannick and Benoit Amirault are Cabernet Franc specialists. They keep yields low and mature this perfumed, supple wine in large, old barrels that preserve its spicy cherry and redcurrant fruit.
The 2014 ‘La Source’ has... ‘bright and lively colour. The fruit is delicate on the nose, lightly spicy with floral perfume notes. On the palate the wine is invigorating and balanced, reaching its peak about five years after vintage.’
Bourgueil and Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil are two of the leading Loire Cabernet Franc appellations and the Amirault estates have been certified organic since 2009.
