Do you know ?
The cabernet franc, or “brittany” grape variety, emerged at the same time as the Bourgueil abbey in the 10th century prior to spread all around the region.
Domain and appellation
With “Made in Loire,” for signature, the Bourgueil AOC sets aside through its unique terroir. Its dedicated men strives to maintain the ancestral heritage they received in 990 with the foundation of the Bourgueil Abbaye.
- Terroir: Spread across 1400 hectares and 7 villages, the vines benefit from a mild climate and lay on a dual terroir of gravel and freestone. Orientated South, the vines are also protected from the wind by the woods.
- Viticulture: The cabernet franc is the main grape variety and can be blended with a maximum of 10% of cabernet sauvignon.
- Vinification: The harvests are vinified by 96% in red wines and 4% in rosé. Those wines result from the collaboration between the maison Nicolas and local wine cellars, which are selected for their abilities to enhance their surrounding terroirs.
