About the Wine
90 points, Wine Enthusiast
“ This wine comes from deep gravel soils on the approach to the Loire river. It is softly textured and light, with crisp acidity. With cherry flavors and a perfumed aftertaste, the wine is ready to drink. Organic and biodynamic. “
About The Winery
Located in Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil in the Loire Valley, Domaine Amirault's Clos des Quarterons is a 92-acre vineyard. The Domaine has been in the Amirault family for six generations and is currently managed by Xavier Amirault and his wife, Agnès. The estate is 100% certified organic by Ecocert and certified biodynamic by Demeter. The biodynamic methods focus on both the environment and the terroir: soil, place, climate, varietal, and the methods of farming. The goal is to achieve a natural balance across the 53 plots of mostly Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc planted at the estate. This thoughtful method of farming is the Domaine's secret to offering unique and living wines, vintage after vintage.
