Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and light
Dark garnet colour with ruby glints. Lovely frank, open and typical nose of pepper, blueberries, floral notes of lily. Good balance on a medium body, nice frank and signed character which goes towards hints of spices, pepper, curry, soft and ripe tannins. Beautiful gourmet finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Domain and appellation
Famille Bougrier Les Cailloux
Since 1885 and six generations, the Bougrier family has been working towards the recognition of Loire Valley Wines and is recognised today as one of the last family Houses covering the whole of the Loire Valley, from Nantes to Sancerre .
Terroir: At the bottom of the vineyard is a sandy soil, giving character to the wine. At the mid-slope, the soil is clayey-sandy. It gives wines of great finesse for laying down. Finally, at the top of the hillsides, the soil is clay and limestone, giving strength to the wines for laying down.
Viticulture: This wine is made from a single grape variety: Cabernet Franc known as "Breton".
Vinification: It is made under marc for 10 to 20 days. It is then followed by malolactic fermentation in vats or barrels and traditional maturing in tuns, vats or barrels.
