2017 Chevalerie - Bourgueil Galichets

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.
