Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Marie Dupin


This cuvée celebrates Marie Dupin, a young peasant girl from Angers, who charmed Ronsard and was his muse.
It benefits from a sheltered exposure and a particularly mild micro climate.
The terroir of the "Marie Dupin" cuvée is characterised by superficial sandy soils that warm up quickly, allowing the Cabernet Franc grape variety to express all its fruity aromatic potential.
Destemming. Vinification in thermo-regulated vats (24°C) and short maceration to preserve the suppleness of the tannins and the fruitiness of the grapes.
Matured for 5 months before bottling in spring.
Cabernet franc : 100%


Serve chilled (14-16°C)
Visual appearance

At nose
The nose is fine and delicate, revealing greedy notes of cherry, plum and violet. It is quickly enriched with notes of red pepper and fine notes of sweet spices.
On the palate
Round and supple attack. Its intense fruitiness underlines the overall balance. The texture is fine, framed by pretty tannins reflecting a beautiful maturity of the harvest. The aromatic palette lingers on the finish through fresh red berries.
Food pairings
It will accompany cold meats (rillettes, andouillette), salads (hot goat's cheese, magret), white and red meats (turkey paupiette, veal filet mignon) and soft cheeses (Coulommiers, country brick).
