Domaine De La Chevalerie Galichets 2009

This is the main wine of the domaine being the biggest plot of 10 ha as a single vineyard. The 45 years old Cabernet Franc vines produce a low yield of 35 hl/ha. The grapes are destemmed and fermentations are done in stainless steel vats for 3 to 4 weeks at 27°C. The wine is aged for about 8 months in 400 to 500 litres demi-muid barrels that are 4 to 8 years old to reduce the oak effect on the wine.

PVins notes: This is an easy drinking Cabernet Franc with smooth tannins and great varietal aromatic characteristics of redberries and spices with hints of licorice and earthiness on the finish. The cellaring potential is 5 to 7 years.

Press: Guide Hachette des Vins 2014 – Excellent
This domaine of reference was not far from renewing a “Coup de Coeur” with its cuvée “Galichets”, made of old Cabernet Franc nestled in gravel left behind by the Loire and hand harvested in small crates. Intense ruby coloured, a prelude to an aromatic expression of remarkable freshness fulfilled around the cassis. Velvety and fleshy, caressing the mouth.
