About

Domaine de la Chevalerie is a leading name in the Bourgueil appellation. The property lies in the commune of Restigné, directly beside Bourgueil, and has been owned by the Caslot family for 14 generations. It is currently run by Stéphanie and Emmanuel who took over the reins from their father Pierre. The 38 hectares of vineyard are certified organic and biodynamic. Winemaking is as low intervention and natural as possible, using indigenous yeasts during the gentle fermentation process, and keeping sulphites to a minimum. The wines are clean, deep, and very drinkable and cover the full spectrum from fruity, easy-drinking wines through to more complex and structured fine wines with good ageing potential. - Importer Note

Another Note: This masterpiece hails from the talented and dearly missed Stephanie Caslot, whose boundless energy and zest for life continue to shine through in every bottle of her wines.

 

Tasting Notes

The 2018 Bourgueil Franco de Porc is clear and spicy on the nose that leads to an elegant and refreshing palate with fine tannins and vibrant acidity. The finish is quite intense and persistent yet remains fine and fresh due to the spicy tannins. This is an excellent, dense, fleshy and structured Bourgueil for many opportunities, as long as there is meat to meet the firm tannins. The wine should refine with some time in the bottle.
