Domaine DU BEL AIR Bourgueil "Jour de Soif" 2020
Wine Region: Loire-Valley - France
Grape: Cabernet Franc
Tasting notes: The Bourgueil Jour De Soif displays a dark purple-red colour and offers intense cherry, blackcurrant, rye bread and mocha notes on the crystalline and refreshing stony bouquet. Silky, fresh and elegant on the palate, this is an intense, round, sweet and juicy yet refined and stimulating red for immediate pleasure, yet it also has the structure to age for up to a decade. Highly stimulating, with fine and fruity tannins and the tart finish of black (sour) cherries.
About the winery:
Domaine du Bel Air is a certified organic estate that has been producing traditional wines from Bourgeuil for the past five generations. Throughout the decades, the Gauthier family have been enjoying their wines privately. In 1979, they began to sell their wines, allowing the public to share a taste of their incredible Cabernet Franc. Pierre Gauthier, the man who oversaw this transformation, continues to make the wines today alongside his son, Rodolphe (collaborating together since 2005).
