This particular wine is picked from select sites in St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil and is done in all stainless steel leaving a pure expression of its terroir (sandy & gravel) and varietal character. Lots of blue and spicy red fruits, rich juicy acidity and a really nice lingering length. Crunchy, uncomplicated and delicious!

'Last but not least, the 2016 Frédéric Mabileau St. Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Les Petits Grains offers a delicious mouthfeel of pure Cabernet Franc fruit, done in stainless steel only in an effort to best convey the spicy blue and black fruit aromas and flavors that this variety exudes in spades. The sandy-gravel soil of the organically farmed vineyards further endows this lovely, juicy wine with a welcome, piercing freshness.' – Ian D'Agata, Vinous, 91/100

'Very focused, with a sleek iron frame and mouthwatering notes of black cherry, savory herb and sweet tapenade. Fresh and racy on the finish.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 90/100
