Fresh and crunchy Cabernet Franc as only Bourgueil can give the world, this bright and brisk red is sappy red currants with just enough currant leaf to show us what this lieu-dit is all about. "Beauregard" located in a small, shallow valley in Restigné, used to belong to the St Martin's collegiate church.
The vineyards face south for maximum exposure to the sun. The relatively deep clay subsoil allows the vine roots to grow very deep. The surface of the sandy topsoil is scattered with small flints, gravel and pebbles (Quaternary alluvial deposits), which warm up rapidly in the sun and help the grapes ripen early. Moreover the vines are over 40 years old and harvests are kept to small yields –fewer than 2 ½ tons per acre.
Charming now, over time this will open up to become even more expressive, with a complex bouquet, featuring fresh fruit aromas of blackberry and also offer hints of violet, bitter chocolate and coffee. It starts out full-bodied and soft on the palate, following through with jammy red-berry fruit.
