Les Quarterons St Nicolas de Bourgueil
Les Quarterons St Nicolas de Bourgueil is a stunning biodynamic Loire red, from the sixth generation Amirault family, who have nurtured this estate. From 95% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from older vines, it is a captivating wine of delicate freshness, and lighter body.
A real soft red fruit charmer. St Nicholas de Bourgueil is a subregion of Bourgueil in the Loire, which produces particularly delicate, aromatic wines.
“We aim to maintain a natural balance to ensure the vine does not succumb to the vagaries of the weather (drought, heavy rainfall). We achieve this balance by adding a small quantity of our own compost, prepared with biodynamic ingredients.
In the spring, the green cover, which is rich in natural flora, effectively controls the rate of growth of the vine to produce wines which are very true to terroir. We use a mix of plants (meadowsweet, nettle, yarrow, dandelion and horsetail) which we gather ourselves, infuse and spray. This reduces the amount of “Bordeaux mixture” required.
We hand harvest the grapes carrying out an initial selection on the vine to ensure only healthy grapes reach our cellars.” – Les Quarterons – Domaine Amirault
The Amirault family have lived at Le Clos des Quarterons for over 180 years. Certified biodynamic since 2013, the Cabernet Franc vines lie on gentle south-facing slopes, capped to the north by a forest offering shelter from the cold winds.
The wines of Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil have protected Designation of Origin status and the entire product area lies within the village of the same name.
