If Le Grand Clos is the premier cru of Bourgueil, Les Malgagnes is its peer in Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil. The Amirault family has bottled wine from Malgagnes since 1947 (an auspicious vintage!), and they now farm 2 hectares of 50-year-old vines in this famed lieu-dit on red clay and limestone soils. Each vintage Yannick and Benoit bottle 750-1500 bottles of this cuvée, aged entirely in sandstone amphorae. This selection always shows both the power and delicacy typical of this terroir with the precision and vibrancy only aging in amphorae can reveal.
