Loire from Intermarché
Intermarché "Expert Club" St Nicolas de Bourgueil, 2018
The main grape in the Loire's Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil sub-region is Cabernet Franc; it finds a home in most areas of Atlantic France and this far north, tends towards freshness and leafiness.
Intermarché "Expert Club" St Nicolas de Bourgueil, 2018 (around €5) red and black fruits, earthy beetroot, herbaceous rubbed sage and pencil shavings; fresh acidity and harmonious, supple texture with fine, gentle tannins. Light, juicy and elegant.
Light enough to sip in the garden on a summer's eve, match with picnic foods, herby sausages or lamb with rosemary.
