Clos des Quarterons Loire wine

Loire wine - Clos des Quarterons

Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil is a small appellation of Touraine, on the right bank of the Loire River, producing red wines from the Cabernet Franc grape. They are known to be light-bodied and fruity wines with a nice freshness and acidity, making them lighter than their neighbour from Bourgueil and Chinon. Upmarket cuvées can however be much more complex and medium to full-bodied.

In our search for the perfect producer in this area, we have tasted many wines and Le Clos des Quarterons was our top discovery. Owned by the Amirault family for over 180 years, it is today managed by Xavier and his wife Agnes. The 32-hectare estate has been certified in Organic and Biodynamic farming, in light of their strong conviction that winemaking should protect the environment before anything else.

Among all the wines produced by Le Clos des Quarterons, we have selected a few Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil reds, as well as a lovely Crémant de Loire – a sparkling wine made of Chenin Blanc – and a unique oaked-aged Anjou Blanc, described as “the estate's most personal wine” by the winemaker. Every wine has its own character, showing the various terroirs and parcels of the estate - vineyard is spread across 33 different plots, and soils vary considerably.

Authenticity and quality: those are the two words that would best describe the wines of this beautiful estate. A true representation of what a small and well-managed family vineyard can produce, definitely worth discovering!

It can be de Loire, de Bourgogne or d'Alsace... Crémant wines have a lot of fans across the world, as they often represent a good alternative to a more expensive Champagne. Grapes used to produce this bottle are harvested manually and offer elegant flavours of citrus, lemon and rose. We love how fresh it is on the palate! Did you know? A sparkling can be...

Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil is getting all the glory this week, starting with this delicious example. Cabernet Franc grapes are harvested when fully mature to make an easy to drink red wine. Packed with expressive aromas of red fruit, typical of Cabernet Franc, it is a great choice to start exploring the appellation from a one of the best organic estate in...

Let's be straight here: We LOVE Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley - they always have something so special. Produced in very small quantity, this cuvée is "the estate's most personal wine", according to the winemaker. Matured in oak barrels for 12 months to bring an exceptional roundness, it exhibits superb notes of citrus, peach and buttercup....

This is simply a delightful wine from Le Clos des Quarterons and winemaker Xavier Amirault! Elaborated from old vines of Cabernet Franc - over 50 year-old - and matured in demi-muids (500-liter barrels), it really shows how complex a great Loire Cabernet Franc can be. Try and decant it for a couple of hours if you can and let the magic come to your glass....

We knew that Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil could mean complex wines, but this one is above our expectations. Made with Cabernet Franc grapes coming from specific, ideally oriented parcels, the wine is aged in oak barrels for almost 30 months - similarly to prestigious Bordeaux or Rioja wines. The result is a full-bodied wine showing a beautiful balance,...
