2019 Yannick Amirault Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Les Malgagnes, France, Loire, Wine Review
In a recent tasting of Loire reds, this was the run away winner. 100% Cabernet Franc. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries, slight cedary notes and chalk. Silky texture. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, the black cherry fruit comes thru with some underlying chalk. Deep. Light tannins. Long finish. Delicious. This is nice on its own and would work nicely with grilled meats or roasted veggies. It may still improve a bit but should drink well for another eight to twelve years.
