Domaine de la Chevalerie

Noms d'Oiseaux Bourgueil 2019


The Chevalerie cuvée "Noms D'Oiseaux" is from two parcels symbolic of the domain, each situated at the two extremities of the slope overlooking the Loire. “Nom d’Oiseaux” is named to remind us of the urgent need to respect biodiversity, not just through false pretences and promises, but through real actions. From some of the earliest adopters of biodynamics, this 17th century domaine is making wines truly of-place. This is a delightfully delicate and fine expression of Cabernet Franc, which defies the typical expectations of this region - beautiful glinting red fruits and integrated fine tannins, this is ethereal Bourgueil.

Vinification: From the producer : Situated in Restigné, in the heart of the Loire Valley and the Bourgueil appellation, Domaine de la Chevalerie has a long family history which started here almost 400 years ago. From this line of Winegrowers, we have inherited invaluable know-how and in-depth knowledge of each of the parcels of our domain. It is with our feet in the ground that we cultivate our Cabernet Franc vines, aged from between 30-70 years on average. Mindful of preserving the essential balance of our ecosystem we work according to organic and biodynamic principles.Whether they come from our single vineyards or special cuvées, our Bourgueil wines are as frank as our cabernets, as profound as our caves and always moreish in their youth.
