2007 Yannick Amirault Bourgeuil La Coudraye

March 27, 2010

In my experience this would be a lighter Bourgeuil. Leafy nose with blackberry and a touch of black walnut. High minus acid and medium dusty tannins. The juicy mid-palate and tart blackberry finish are refreshing and save the wine from being mean because it is a little green and lean. Because of its Cabernet family flavors, a modicum of balance and a high acidity it will likely not clash with any number of red meat dishes but I’m having a hard time thinking of something it would go great with. Maybe grilled salmon with some kind of sauce or garnish that uses capers.
