DOMAINE DE LA CHANTELEUSERIE Bourgueil Cuvée Alouettes 2016 $14.99
About thirty miles downriver of Vouvray lies the sleepy town of Bourgueil, where Cabernet Franc reigns. Thierry Boucard represents the seventh generation of his family to run Domaine de la Chanteleuserie, an estate blessed with some of the appellation’s finest parcels. The Cuvée Alouettes comes from sandy soils, which tend to yield softer wines with very supple tannins—perfect for drinking young. Fermentated and aged in stainless steel preserves the aromas of fresh fruit: wild berries jump out of the glass invitingly, while a peppery note adds an earthy twist. The gentle finish makes it oh-so gulpable—be sure to put a slight chill on it, and serve with picnic fare, lunch, or a BLT.
