Domaine Audebert Rosé Bourgueil 2021
Bourgueil / Loire Valley
Clay-Limestone, Siliceous Clay
100% Cabernet Franc
The family settled in the Bourgueil area in 1839 and now exploits 40 hectares of vineyard on the BOURGUEIL, SAINT NICOLAS DE BOURGUEIL AND CHINON appellations. Respecting the soils, the cuvées represent their single grape variety, the “cabernet franc” and is the character of the vintage. Situated on the territory of the town Benais, this vineyard, of a hectare and a half, produces powerful and rich wines. This is related to the type of soil and age of the vines : the rich clay limestone soil determines their tannic character and the particular flavour of « tuffeau »(limestone) wine. The vineyard is 60 years old. Vigorous, it produces grapes with smaller grains giving very concentrated wines.
