Cave Robert & Marcel - Bourgueil
Cabernet franc (100%)
In 1957, around forty winegrowers grouped together to confront the economic difficulties of the era, pooling far more than mere financial concerns. At the time, Robert, Marcel, Yvon, Geneviève and the others, hailing from the same terroir, hewn from the same rock and sharing the same time-honoured values, set up their cooperative at the top of the hill in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg. “They chose to share their experience, their expertise and their dreams„
Soil: Located on the right bank of the Loire, the Bourgueil appellation covers nearly 1,300 hectares. The vines are well-sheltered, have good sun exposure, and enjoy an especially mild microclimate. The terroir producing Cuvée Marie Dupin consists largely of sand and gravel soil enabling Cabernet Franc to express its full aromatic potential.
Destemming and fermentation in temperature-controlled (24°C) vats with short maceration to enhance smoothness, quality tannin, and fruitiness. /nAged for 5 months before bottling in spring.
Tasting notes
Beautiful, deep, ruby-red red color. Aromas of ripe fruit, violet, and spice. Round and fruity on the palate, with great balance and elegant tannin.
Food pairing
Best enjoyed slightly chilled (14-16°C) with delicatessen meats (pâté, dry sausage), salads, roast white meats, chicken with tarragon, grilled meats, shepherd's pie, and soft-ripened cheeses (Saint Nectaire, Curé Nantais).
