From an east-facing, very calcareous terroir and almost 50-year-old vines (on average), the 2014 Bourgueil Les Quartiers offers a deep and still closed bouquet of dark and spicy fruits, pencil lead and leather, indicating a nice purity and freshness. Round and fruity on the palate, with a fleshy texture, great finesse and elegance, this is a beautiful Cabernet Franc that just needs our patience to develop its talents. It was fermented in temperature-regulated wooden casks and aged in tonneaux for 30 months. At this price, this is truly a Best Buy and the energy and vitality, as well as the grip and mineral tension, give Les Quartiers an excellent aging potential. This is a great wine with food, especially meat. Highly recommended!
