The estate, certified Ecocert and Demeter, is cultivated to biodynamic guidelines, respecting the environment. Clos des Quarterons is a 37 hectare family run estate and the sixth generation of the Amirault family, Agnes and Xavier are now in charge. The domaine plants Cabernet Franc and has been joined by just over a hectare of Chenin Blanc, planted on gravel and siliceous soils that trap the heat of the sun.
This exceptional red wine from Touraine is made from 30 year old Cabernet Franc vines grown on gravel soils in a warm micro-climate. The colour is an unexpectedly deep purple, and the bouquet combines black fruits and spice. This ripe Cabernet Franc shows the special intense character of old vines, powerful, rich palate, balanced with freshness of fruit and a satisfying finish of lingering autumn fruit. Drink with roast or grilled lamb, pork, casseroles, game birds and matured cheeses. Media: Top 100 in the Wine Merchant 2019.
