In the vineyard
The vines from which this cuvée is made have been converted to organic farming since 1996.
They are cultivated by Jean-Marie AMIRAULT according to the most respectful methods of the resources (ground, air, water) guaranteeing the authenticity of the expression of the place.
The harvested and de-stemmed grapes undergo a delicate maceration in concrete vats for 5 days, completed by a 10-day immersion of the marc for a perfect extraction of the potential. Fermentation is done with indigenous yeasts to preserve the authenticity of the terroir.
The wine is aged for 6 months before being bottled in the spring.
Cabernet franc : 100%


Served at 16°C.

Tasting notes
The Amirault vintage reveals a delicate nose of violets, ripe black fruit (blackcurrant, Morello cherry) and a hint of sweet spices. The palate is characterised by a nice roundness, supported by a beautiful structure with assertive tannins. The finish is persistent with ripe fruit.
Food pairings
