Product Overview

Importer's Notes
"A 25-acre vineyard heading down the terrace toward the river that is planted on stony, sandy clay soils (the limestone bedrock is at least three feet below the surface and typically more). The oldest vines in Galichets date from 1934. A part of that plantation was replanted in the 1970s and 80s, with yet another small section replanted in the 1990s. The siblings are beginning to replant some of the oldest vines now, bringing the average age of this vineyard to 40 years. Galichets tends to make the domaine's spiciest and fruitiest wine, underpinned by a dark sappiness. Production averages 1,500 cases."

Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Franc
Appellation: Bourgueil AOC

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"From 45-year-old vines on clay-silex soils at the bottom of the coteau in the village of Restigné, the 2015 Bourgueil Galichets is a supple and tasty wine. Reductive and a bit leathery when young, this is an intense, structured and refreshing red with dense, dark fruit, fine and present tannins and good length. Aged in barrels for six months." -SR, 8/5/2021
