- Gauthier Bourgueil Les Vingt Lieux Dits 2011 Product #27971 (In Stock)
A very special Loire Cabernet Franc from the top parcels farmed by Pierre and Catherine Gauthier in Bourgueil, across the river from Chinon. The Gauthier's farm organically, ferment using native yeasts, and age their wines in used double-sized casks. The 2011 is lovely with beautiful aromas of purple fruit, green tobacco and a subtle earthy note. In the mouth it's snappy and crisp with tart cherry and purple berry fruit, more tobacco, and pleasing cherry pit bitterness. A great wine for fresh greens or peppers and better still with classic steak frite!
