Tasting Notes
Clos des Quarterons is a 37 hectare family run estate in Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil; Agnes and Xavier are the sixth generation of the Amirault family, they have been farming organically and bio dynamically since 2013. The Les Quaterons comes from Cabernet-Franc vines planted the lower slopes on a mix of gravel and sand over clay subsoil; the grapes are picked and crushed and macerated for 2-3 weeks on the skins in tank to keep the vibrant crunchy freshness. A vibrant nose of flowers, raspberries and blue berries with mineral notes and a pretty, delicate fresh palate of mineral wrapped raspberries with perky acidity and a saline, chalky fresh finish, perfect for a light meal would even work with fish.
