TASTING

When to drink this wine : To be drunk from 2022 to 2030 (+).

Tasting : In its young years, Bourgueil les Marsaules opens with a powerful, deep and fleshy nose, with a stony and iron-rich side when poured directly from the bottle. After a few days, the bouquet changes and opens up; becoming charmingly ripe and intense in fruit, with red rather than black fruit aromas and a remarkably refined terroir tone with stone and tea aromas. Rather light than heavy and stimulatingly fresh, this is an elegant, refined, silky-textured Cabernet Franc with firm, peppery tannins and a lingering, fresh, salivating finish. The palate also changes a lot with air, and I highly recommend giving the wine plenty of air. It will develop beautifully after a few years in the cellar.

The domain tells you about it : 

 

THE VINEYARD 

  • Terroir and soils : Mixture of sand and micaceous chalk. Average age of the vines : 60 years.
  • Philosophy : Organic farming (Certified by Ecocert in 2000)

  

IN THE CELLAR 

Vinification and maturation: In the cellar, the grapes are entirely destemmed and then sorted again on a table before being vatted. Fermentations are traditional and with indigenous yeasts after a pre-fermentation cold maceration. The vatting is gentle and lasts on average 20 to 30 days with regular pumping over and punching down. The wines are then aged in barrels or demi-muids, the proportion of new barrels varying according to the vintages. The Gauthier family is fortunate to have old caves carved into the tufa rock that serve as a cosy nest for the wines. They rest there, serenely, in a stable and caulked environment with natural temperatures ideal for conservation. This cuvée was aged in 2 and 3 wine barrels for 24 months. The wines are then bottled without filtration.

  

TASTING ADVICE:

This wine can be drunk now provided that it is opened in advance for at least 2 hours or decanted.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
