Bourgueil "Les Collis" 2014 - Complices de Loire


 

Complices de Loire is a small estate based in Touraine and founded by François-Xavier Barc - a brilliant winemaker from the region. He owns a small vineyard and also works with some of the best winegrowers from the region to produce an amazing range of wines.

One of the high-end cuvées of Complices de Loire, this Bourgueil clearly shows how complex and structured red wines from Loire Valley can be. Nose is expressive with aromas of cherries, strawberries and cocoa. Palate is rich and balanced with spicy tannins in the background brought by oak barrels. If you are keen on going a little further in discovering Loire Valley, this is a top pick.

La Revue des Vins France

"Small clay and limestone parcel (1,40 ha) where Cabernet Franc, spending 18 months in oak, develops notes of fresh red fruit. Palate offers a polished structure, making this charming vintage ready to drink." (previous vintage)
