Made on lighter soils, the St Nicolas de Bourgeuil appellation produces fragrant reds with a tempting immediacy, very hard to resist. Cabernet Franc is the chosen black grape as it ripens earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon and offers an enchanting perfume.

Tragically Frédéric Mabileau was killed in a light plane accident on the eve of vintage 2020. His resilient wife Nathalie and sons Charly and Rémy have been quick to carry on his masterful work. His family's winegrowing history dates back to 1620, and Frédéric skilfully combined age-old traditions with forward thinking. Organically certified, the vines are biodynamically grown and chemicals eschewed.

This red is light, fruity and full of finesse. It epitomises everything that this unique terroir offers in terms of purity, freshness and pleasure.
