I doubt if anyone is making better wine today in Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil and Bourgueil than Yannick Amirault. He is undoubtedly one of the Loire’s top red wine producers. I love the purity of fruit in his wines and their texture – sumptuous in cuvées like La Petite Cave. Yannick has vines in both Saint Nicolas and in Bourgueil. His Bourgueils include La Coudraye, Les Quartiers and Le Grand Clos, while from Saint Nicolas there is La Source, La Mine and Les Malgagnes.
