The Amirault family has lived at Le Clos des Quarterons for over 180 years. For almost two centuries, six generations have tended the vines and guided the wines, respecting the work of their predecessors and making quality their priority. The domaine is now fully organic and biodynamic. Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil lies on the border between Anjou and Touraine. The Amirault vineyards cover one third of the village land (1,050 hectares), on gentle south-facing slopes, capped to the north by a forest offering shelter from the cold winds. The plots located in the former bed of the Loire enjoy a soil composed of an alluvium of gravel. The vines perched on the slopes have their roots anchored in limestone and silty clay. The remaining plots, on the first terrace, lie in sandy and gravel soils with a clay base. Add in a gentle microclimate, and you have a terroir perfectly typical of Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil vineyards.
