Domaine de la Lande Bourgueil Les Graviers 2015

Domaine de la Lande is a wine estate in the heart of the Loire Valley, located on the hillside of Bourgueil. This family vineyard has been cultivated for several generations. With a constant concern for quality, the Delaunay family cultivates their vines in organic farming and practices manual harvesting. The estate is spread over several plots and mainly produces Bourgueil wines.

Bourgueil like neighboring Chinon is Cabernet Franc heavy, and together the two regions are known around the world for producing some of the finest examples of the grape. Unlike Chinon which is rich with limestone, Bourgueil has sandy soils that lie beneath the vines. This sandy soil produces a great struggle that brings out the juiciest, most fragrant renditions of Cab Franc.

This Cabernet Franc is a round wine with present but well-integrated tannins. There are small notes of evolution on the nose and in the mouth, hints of spices and very ripe red fruits.

$22.99
