Domaine de la Chanteleuserie Bourgueil Cuvee Alouettes 2017
From their south-facing limestone sites, in fact, Thierry and his forebears have produced beautifully nuanced Bourgueils with the structure to age for decades in bottle. The Cuvée Alouettes, however, comes from sandier soils, which tend to yield softer wines with very supple tannins-perfect for drinking young. It saw fermentation and aging in stainless steel to preserve maximum aromas of fresh fruit, and the fruits are not lacking: wild berries jump out of the glass invitingly, while a peppery note adds an earthy twist. The gentle finish makes it oh-so gulpable-be sure to put a slight chill on it, and serve with picnic fare, lunch, or a BLT.

Domaine Les Pins Rochettes Bourgueil 2017Christophe and Philippe Pitault's meticulously crafted wines has allowed their reputation has grown. In accordance, they have also more than doubled the size of their vineyards from 17 hectares in 1994 to 29 hectares today. They maintain a deep respect for tradition and terroir, while using new technology. They focus heavily on the farming techniques that preserve the vineyards and soil with great care and patience, including the practice of green harvest and leaving grass between the rows forcing the roots of the vines to go deeper. They practice sustainable farming to respect the environment and not as a selling point.
