Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil AOC 2020, Domaine du Fondis
“This was our wedding wine. It's delicious and special and we always need to have it in the cupboard.”
“This is my absolute favourite. Seems to go with everything - just love it.”
“I absolutely adore this wine and can't stop buying it. It is a perfect expression of the cabernet franc grape and reminds me of sunny summers along the Loire. It is a light red that compliments many foods and in the summer you can lightly chill it for a refreshing red.”
The Jamet family has been farming their land on the right bank of the Loire, near Saumur, for four generations. This was one of the first wines we imported into the UK over 20 years ago and the Jamet family represent everything that we love about this business. The old alluvial sand so familiar in the area are worked with enormous attention to detail using traditional methods with the least possible human intervention and sustainable viticulture with organic products. No oak. The pure fruit goes into the bottle. Elegant and beautifully light red, a summer favourite, particularly as it delicious served lightly chilled.
Bright ruby purple red with a distinctive strawberry, cherry nose. Concentrated, elegant, smooth and delicate with ripe red berry fruits, undercut with mushroom and red peppercorns. Elegant, fruity finish with soft tannins. Our top choice to accompany a roast chicken, or on its own.
