Frédéric Mabileau “Les Rouillères”
Wine growing in the Mabileau clan dates back to 1620! The current Frédéric Mabileau estate was created in 1988 when vines were planted on the plot of … Rouillères. Since this first plantation, the estate has undergone a conversion to organic viticulture and biodynamics. The old vines of the “Les Rouillères” cuvée give this wine richness and concentration. Red fruits on the nose, with a soft, juicy structure and a fair acidity. Truly one of the finest examples of the Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil wine appellation and an excellent example of single-varietal Cabernet Franc. A wine that has become a neo-classic of the Loire Valley thanks to Frédéric Mabileau, an exceptional winemaker, too soon departed.
