How many ways can you drink Cabernet Franc???? Nous allons au Domaine De La Chevalerie, Bourgueil

The Caves of Domaine de la Chevalerie date from the 11th to 13th centuries. Dug under the vines to source rock to build the neighbouring village, they cover 1.5 hectares and are home to some of the best wines from Bourgueil. Mr. Pierre Caslot the current propriétaire of a family business established in 1635, offers moments of tasting. As we walk we see walls of bottles - over 150,000!


Here are some the 18 (!!!) wines we tasted:

Dyptique 2013 6,95

Galichets 2011 10,00

Chevalerie 2011 17,00
