Yannick Amirault created his own Domaine in 1977 with 3.9 hectares of the Malgagnes vineyard he inherited from his grandfather. Yannick’s son Benoit joined his father in 2003 and today the Domaine has 20 hectares, 2/3 in Bourgueil and 1/3 in Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil. The Domaine has been certified Organic since 2009 and no chemicals or weed killers have been used since 1997. The vines are between 45-50 years old and all the wines go into a mixture of barriques and demi-muids.
Le Rosé d'Equinoxe is a sort of blanc de noirs from 100% direct press. This unique bone-dry rose has the luxury of being aged in barrel. A serious "rosé" which is a brilliant drinking experience.
