From: Bourgueil, France
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Domaine du Bel Air has been making wine for five generations, but only selling it commercially since 1979. Run by Pierre Gauthier and his son Rodolphe, the estate achieved organic certification in 2000. While the estate specializes in age-worthy Cabernet Franc, the "Jour de Soif" (Day of Thirst) is their über-quaffable entry-level offering, meant to be drunk young. Medium in weight with crushed berry fruit, light tannins, and prominent minerality, this is fresh, yummy Cabernet Franc at its best.
Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard. Certified in the country of origin.
Tasting Notes: The 2019 Bourgueil Jour De Soif displays a dark purple-red color and offers intense cherry, blackcurrant, rye bread and mocha notes on the crystalline and refreshing stony bouquet. Silky, fresh and elegant on the palate, this is an intense, round, sweet and juicy yet refined and stimulating red for immediate pleasure, yet it also has the structure to age for up to a decade. Highly stimulating, with fine and fruity tannins and the tart finish of black (sour) cherries. Tasted in May 2021. -RP
