Domaine de la Chevalerie
The Caslot family have been farming their domaine of thirty-three hectares since 1640 from their farmhouse, which sits on the hill overlooking the vines in the heart of the superb terroir of Restigné. Several cuvées of varying degrees of intensity and complexity are made from different soils and organically farmed vines. Pick of the cuvées is arguably the Bourgueil Diptyque, packed full of raspberry, bell pepper and tobacco aromas. The palate is lively and aromatic with plenty of red-fruit flavours and bitter red cherry notes.
