Overview

Cote 50 is the entry-level wines from Yannick Amirault coming from 4.75 hectares of vines on gravelly clay and sandy soils in Bourgueil – Les Sables, La Coudraye, Les Pins, and Les Perrières. It is a vibrant, and easy-drinking Bourgueil and a testament to the joys of Cabernet Franc at the table.
