Organic since 1998, the Clos de l'Abbaye is a 7 hectare walled vineyard (50 year-old vines) owned by a religious order and rented since 1975 to the current producers. In production since the 11th century (that's a thousand years!) hand harvested and certified organic, vinified in stainless steel, aged in old barrels. The 2010 needs a bit of aeration, then shows deep aromas of blackberry, cassis, earth, clove, stone and musk. Classic Bourgueil! A structured palate, typical of 2010, supple, round and textured with black fruits, earth and game over saline minerals. Serve cool with roast chicken, grilled meats, charcuterie and full-favored cheeses. Thanks to importer Integrity Wines for bringing in this old-school Bourgueil at a reasonable price.
