The vineyard of Bourgueil extends over 1300 hectares. The main grape variety is Cabernet Franc. The soils are composed of limestone, sand and gravel. They develop floral notes (rose, peony, violet), fruity (raspberry, cherry, plum) or spicy (pepper, walnut). Red wines produced on gravel soils are best enjoyed young. Supple and fruity, they are quickly ready to drink.
They are served around 14°C. These wines go perfectly with white or grilled meats. The reds produced on limestone soils can be kept for several years. They are served at 17°C with red meat or game. Rosé wines are rarer and go very well with cold meats and barbecues.
