Frederic Mabileau Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil, 2017
Lovely intensity of red cherry fruit. Firm tannins supporting elegant red fruit, firm structure and minerality.
Good quality grapes produce good quality wines and Frederic Mabileau is very serious about producing quality wines by simply having the best grapes possible. Using a combination of careful maintenance of the vines and a production that respects the highest ecological standards, these are the principals used in Mabileau's winemaking.

Wines from the Loire Valley vary wildly in terms of their style and flavour – in part due to the vast number of appellations and large areas planted under vine. From tangy, minerally, terroir-driven Sauvignon whites, to juicy and distinctive Pinot Noir reds and roses, and a great deal of specialities in between. Brimming with innovative producers aiming to produce wines as naturally as possible, there is much joy to be found in Loire Valley wines – we recommend you dive in head first to sample the delights on offer today!
