Wine Region: Loire-Valley - France
Grape: Cabernet Franc
Tasting notes: Grand-Mont is certainly the most beautiful terroir of Bourgueil. Winegrowers try hard to get a few acres of vines to offer wines of great concentration but always with that Loire freshness. The first nose reveals notes of cherries. The second nose offers flavours of blackcurrant, blueberry and spices. The palate is complex, velvety, voluminous.
About the winery:
Domaine du Bel Air is a certified organic estate that has been producing traditional wines from Bourgeuil for the past five generations. Throughout the decades, the Gauthier family have been enjoying their wines privately. In 1979, they began to sell their wines, allowing the public to share a taste of their incredible Cabernet Franc. Pierre Gauthier, the man who oversaw this transformation, continues to make the wines today alongside his son, Rodolphe (collaborating together since 2005).
