CAVE DRUSSE NATHALIE ET DAVID

CAVE DRUSSE NATHALIE ET DAVIDThese young wine growers were rewarded in 2005 by the Départemental price for Dynamique Agricole. Nathalie and David Drussé produce wines certified Organic farming "FR BIO-01”.

Like us, you will love their superb Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil rouge Vieilles Vignes 2018, a pure Cabernet franc, from a tuffeau terroir, it is a typical wine as we like it, with framing, notes of griotte and humus, of sustained colour, round mouth.
Remarkable cuvée Amplitude 2017, low yield production that is part of late harvests of old vines (66 years), located on the slopes of tuffeau, at the edge of the woods, nose of small red fruits (redcurrant), it is a robust wine, rich and persistent palate with hints of blackberry and smoke, which begins to open.
Beautiful Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil rouge Les Graviers 2020, elaborated on soils of flint and sand, with these notes characteristic of ripe raspberry, intense on the nose as in the mouth, particularly charming.
Seductive Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil rosé 2020 Bio, a pure Cabernet franc, of a brackish color, that blossoms the dried apricot, it is a nervous wine, charming, both dry and friand, and it associates itself with rillons or a quiche, for example.
There is also their red Bourgueil Leroy de Restigné 2019, still particularly marked by its clay-limestone soil, with aromas of cooked fruit and undergrowth, but also cherry, prunes and truffle, it is a very balanced wine where the tannins are firm and melted at the same time, powerful and tasty mouth.

The Domaine also produces for some vintages wines without added sulphites, in small quantities. To be tasted freely on many gastronomic opportunities.
Free reception for the adherent camp-site-drivers with France Passion or others.
The cellar has just obtained for the comfort of all, the label “Tourisme and Handicap”.

Characteristics
The expression of the soils is preserved to the maximum, fruity for the gravels and charms for argilo-limestones. The purpose of the severe selections are to banish green tannins and the bitterness. In our areas, Cabernet franc is a type of vine which requires many patience, attention and care, in order to work out greedy and tempting wines: a big challenge every year
Wine and food pairing
The rosé calls a pause in end of the afternoon, but also the crudenesses, the fish, the exotic dishes. Great user-friendliness for the vintage Les Graviers (dishes of summer, rib steak on the grill, toasts of Saint-Maure of Touraine) and dishes simmered for the fleshier wines like Les Vieilles Vignes and Leroy de Restigné
