The Clos des Quarterons is a magnificent and unique place with a cellar dug into the tufa stone on the Saint Nicolas hillside. The wines of Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil are recognised as AOP (Appellation d'Origine Protégée) and are only produced in the eponymous commune! The conditions for growing the vines are exceptional. Indeed, the region is bounded to the north by a forest which protects the vines from cold winds. The vines are also exposed to the south on a gentle slope, which allows the vineyard to enjoy a beautiful sunshine throughout the year.
The Clos des Quarterons, much more than just a place, is above all a family story! This estate has been the cradle of the Amirault family for over 180 years now. Today, it is Xavier and his wife Agnès who manage the thirty hectares with sincerity and precision.
Organic and biodynamic farming as well as parcel-based vinification allow the expression of the terroir to be appreciated. The estate has very nice gravels. Some parcels are on tuff, directly in the limestone, while others are on deeper soils with a layer of clay.
"It was after a stay in the United States that I returned to the family estate to take over from my brother Thierry. In the continuity of his work, I led the domain in organic agriculture from the beginning. Then, together with him, we integrated a biodynamic dimension. More than a philosophy, the joy that invades us when we see biodiversity revealed on a daily basis is indescribable."
"Biodynamics for me is a return to understanding our soil so that our vines feel good in their soil! It also allows us to react according to the observation of the behaviour of our plants. When I was a kid, I used to hide in the cellar, it was always a magical place for me!"
