Red wine. St. Nicolas de Bourgueil, Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Cabernet Franc. "The 2017 Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil “la Mine” from Benoît and Yannick Amirault is a lovely wine in the making, with a complex and expressive bouquet of cassis, black cherries, cigar smoke, a touch of tree bark, espresso, gentle meaty tones and a fine base of gravelly soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and nicely structured, with a fine core, excellent soil signature, ripe tannins and impressive length and grip on the very promising finish. This bottling always needs at least a few years in the cellar to blossom, but all of the constituent components are in place for an outstanding wine with a bit of patience." — 91+ Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar #77 (Sept./Oct. 2018)
