Pierre Borel Clos de la Pavee Bourgueil 2019
  • $ 37.00

100% Cabernet Franc

A savory natural red with bright cranberry and cherry fruit, rich herbaceous notes. Very fragrant with charred green pepper on the nose and a bitter dark chocolate-like finish. A delicious, fresh expression of Bourgueil.  Angers native Pierre Borel has been making wine since 2006 with the old vines of the ‘Clos de Pavée’ which is a two and a half hectare parcel planted in gravel soils, a big difference from the clay/limestone usually found around him. After a few years of working with these old vines, he decided that he needed to uproot and replant the whole parcel to his liking and settled on planting two hectares of cabernet franc and half an hectare of Chenin. The vines are now six years old. Pierre works the vines alone, doing everything manually, and he wants to keep it that way. He is a firm believer in organic viticulture, certified by AB, and while he doesn’t believe the AOC system is a mark of quality per se, he views working within the AOC a commitment to the winemaking traditions of the area.   12.5% ABV
