Item Description

About thirty miles downriver of Vouvray lies the sleepy town of Bourgueil, where Cabernet Franc reigns. Thierry Boucard represents the seventh generation of his family to run Domaine de la Chanteleuserie, an estate blessed with some of the appellation’s finest parcels. From their south-facing limestone sites, in fact, Thierry and his forebears have produced beautifully nuanced Bourgueils with the structure to age for decades in bottle. The Cuvée Alouettes, however, comes from sandier soils, which tend to yield softer wines with very supple tannins—perfect for drinking young. It saw fermentation and aging in stainless steel to preserve maximum aromas of fresh fruit, and the fruits are not lacking: wild berries jump out of the glass invitingly, while a peppery note adds an earthy twist. The gentle finish makes it oh-so gulpable—be sure to put a slight chill on it, and serve with picnic fare, lunch, or a BLT.

Very Nice!!

"I had this at a wine bar and then bought a case here. This has the fruit on the front and then the transition to the "franc" earthy dry at the end. I am no expert but I really like it, and it is a reasonable price. Maybe add a slight chill to the bottle; also, better if you let it sit in the decanter for 45 minutes. You will enjoy it."
