FX Barc Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil Les Canonnieres 2015
is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Region: Loire Valley
Variety: Cabernet Franc
Estate: François Xavier ran a famous Chinon estate forted r many years, then the possibility to create his own venture with a close friend in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil arose. In early 2010, Xavier started with the help of several Loire Valley producers in St. Nicholas de Bourgueil, Bourgueil, Chinon, Samur, and Touraine. Thanks to these deep and trustful relationships, Xavier has been able to select the best plots and pick the best grapes.
Vinification is traditional. Just a good sense of capturing the fruitiness of those wines and getting soft and round tannins. By harvesting ripe and using drastic cultural methods Xavier is able to get the highest quality grapes.
Xavier brings modern methods with traditional techniques. Results are truly boutique negociant. Thanks to that flexibility, Xavier adapts his portfolio by having different wines and sources. Even if demand grows, Xavier will not produce wine if the no quality is found. Quality is the motto.
Tasting Notes: Red berries, floral flavors, soft tannins, good length in mouth. Everything is set at work to enhance the Cabernet Francs varietal characteristics.
