Saint Nicolas De Bourgueil, Touraine

Les Rouillères Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2019

Vintage 2019 | a favorite producer of mine. 100% Cabernet franc, vines 25 a 40 years old. Bio wine. It is so much fun to taste the difference between Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil and for example Saumur Champigny. Pop and pour. Frivolous raspberry bouquet, gains expression with aeration. It’s not the power that catches the eye, but finesse and elegance. Medium weight. Lovely now, paired with ostrich stew and mixed vegetables from the oven. Happy. — 11 days ago

Kezako Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Cabernet Franc

It’s a two-for-one: delicious drink and lip stain. A girl’s dream.

Color shades such as blackberry pepper pie, warm eggplant, earthen spice. And she’s an all night wear, long lasting, a little grip, does not come off on other glassware.

Maybe she’s born with it, maybe she’s CabFrancbelline.

Coëf Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2018

Fun stuff. Natty bourgueil aged in qvevri from cult natural winemaker Sébastien David. Nebulous, mouth-coating palate. Pepper, cinnamon spice, raspberry, medium tannins. Plush & a touch sweet for us. Bien. — 3 months ago

Not a fan at first, but by the time the food was served, reminded me why I love cab franc with Asian flavors. — 3 months ago

Floral tinged strawberry juice. Lighter weight than many a Bourgueil or Chinon and with and more fruit focused nose. Just delicious. — a month ago

Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil Cabernet Franc

Vintage 2020 | Wine is served chilled. Beautiful raspberry expression, and although só young a velvety taste. No wonder Paris brasserie visitors like Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil and other Loire reds from Cab Franc. Paired with steak tartare, salad and frites. | At restaurant wagon Léo in Bastogne Belgium — 3 months ago
