Yannick Amirault

Since inheriting the Estate from his father in 1982, Yannick Amirault has transformed it into Bourgeuil’s most reputed Domaine. His 11 hectares in Bourgueil and 5 hectares in St Nicholas de Bourgueil are planted with vines of varying ages on differing soil types. His respect of the vine and its terroir, sees Yannick restricting yields and keeping chemical usage to the bare minimum. Furthermore, the wines display a harmony and purity that suggest Yannick’s vast experience and knowledge are not restricted to viticulture but winemaking too. La Source is a juicy cuvée made from a plot of young vines in St Nicholas and planted on sandy soil that is aged for a short time in old wood. The old limestone-based Petite Cave produces much deeper, more concentrated wines that require at least a year in partially new wood barriques.
