Wine of the Day: Domaine Amirault Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Le Fondis Cabernet Franc

From gravel and clay-filled soils in Loire Valley’s Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, Domaine Amirault Le Fondis Cabernet Franc ($45) shines as an elegant, earthy example of cool-climate Cab Franc. Dedicated to allowing Mother Nature to shine, with a sustainably low interventionist style, employing biodynamic agricultural practices, the winery achieves elegant, earthy, distinct wines showcasing the terroir of Central Loire Valley. From a vineyard site that dates back over 300 years, the wine exhibits a meaty richness, with structure, a full-body, an expressive, lush palate, and a lengthy finish. A perfect wine to pair with a rich stew or hearty braised dish on a cold winter evening. #Cheers
