Bernard Galbrun's "Chartois" is a organic, biodynamically farmed Cab Franc with an earthy elegance. In Bourgueil, a sleepy commune situated on the right bank of the Loire River about midway between Angers and Tours, we see the mainstay grape, Cabernet Franc, produced in its apogee. Inspired by the uniqueness of the terroir, Bertrand Galbrun founded his eponymous domain in the area in 2005 and he now farms 3.5 hectares of 100% organic grapes. He is truly committed to the production of non-interventionist wine in order to eke out the purest, most limpid expression of grape and place. The reds of Bourgueil are elemental and visceral: they make you want to eat. They are peppery, savory, with just enough tannin to pair beautifully with a wide variety of foods. Bertrand’s first cuvée comes from low yields of organically certified 30yo vines planted in Restigne in sandy soil with limestone at depth. Fermentation is carried out by gentle infusion with just three or four pump overs during two weeks. A clear mid-red colour with cherry glints, it has attractive red fruits, is quite saline, and is a real vin de soif. No sulphur. For drinking now to 2018
