Yannick Amirault founded the estate in 1977 with only 3.9 hectares of vines he inherited from his grandfather. Since that time Yannick and his son Benoît, who joined the family business in 2003, have expanded their holding to 20 hectares of vineyards in both Bourgueil and Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil. Work in the vineyard and cellar follows the lunar calendar and the estate received organic certification in 2009. Vinification is non interventionist and the use of sulfite is minimal. Benoît is now fully in charge of the estate. Being part of the generational transition, he has become one of the leading figures in the Bourgueil and Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil appellations.

Biodynamic. Thirty five year old average Cabernet Franc. Gravel terrasses soil. Blend of four plots: Sables, Coudraye, Pins, Perrières. Vinified all together in tanks and then aged 12 months in a mix of oak vats and sandstones eggs..

Pure, ripe, well-balanced, with blackberry, kirsch and violet flavors at the core, while hints of pepper and thyme glide along the edges. Silky in texture, featuring seamlessly integrated fine tannins. Mineral elements mark the finish.
