"The 2017 Malgagnes bottling of St. Nicolas de Bourgueil from the Amirault family was the first vintage of this wine, to my knowledge, to be raised in amphora. These are primarily old vines in this vineyard, with the oldest planted in 1936, and partial replantings here having taken place in 1973 and 1994. The 2017 Malgagnes is outstanding, offering up a deep and sappy nose of black cherries, black raspberries, a touch of pomegranate, a touch of sweet balsamic tones, dark soil elements, a whisper of tree bark and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and beautifully sappy at the core, with great soil signature, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, powerful and beautifully balanced finish. I have the sense that the use of amphora has given this wine a bit more rounder tannins out of the blocks than many young St. Nicolas de Bourgueil bottlings. This is excellent juice, but give it a few more years in the cellar to really come into its own, as there is a great wine buried here." — 92+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #83 (September/October 2019)
