It was with the Rouillères that all began, the cuvée of Saint-Nicolas par excellence, light, fruity and all in finesse. This wine concentrates all that our particular terroir offers, freshness, pleasure ... A wine that wants to be simple and pure.
Emblematic of the estate, Les Rouillères is the first plot planted by Frédéric and Nathalie. It becomes the eponym of this cuvée rich in fruit and depth. Our Cabernet Franc vines are planted on a terrace where the Loire has deposited its sand and gravels. All of our grapes are harvested by hand and no insecticide is used on our vines that are about forty years old.
This 2019 vintage is revealed under notes of licorice and wild strawberries. Your mouth will be carried away by this pretty basket of wild blackberries and violets.
Fruit of an infusion of destemmed grapes, this cuvée is aged for 8 months in vats. The yeasts are indigenous and the wine has few sulphites, 30mg/L in total.
Ready to drink, this cuvée can be consumed within 5 years. This wine will sublimate pasta with arrabiata or a thai satay chicken. Open 1 hour before and serve between 14°C and 16°C.
