2017 Yannick Amirault Bourgueil «La Coudraye»
Region: France, Loire Valley - Bourgueil
Grape Variety: Cabernet Franc
Dry, medium-bodied red | Charcuterie, or a fried pork chop
Yannick Amirault has been quietly making some of the best wines in Bourgueil since he took over the then tiny estate in 1977, preferring to let the wines speak for themselves. This Cabernet Franc is delicate on the nose, with perfumed roses and cranberries, but still packs a punch with its lithe and peppery body.
