Avis Vin Fort
50-year-old Cabernet Franc plots on gravel, delivering an uplifting, energetic style. Fermentation and elaboration take place in high-quality oak casks from tonnelier Marc Grenier from Bourgogne.
The Breton family has been making exceptional wine in the Loire for four generations. Their vineyards located in Vouvray (Chenin), Bourgueil and Chinon (Cabernet Franc) benefit from the best terroirs and exposition. Pierre Breton grew up in Bourgueil and his wife Cathérine in Vouvray. Today, son Paul and daughter also belong to the winemaker’s team at this first-class domain.
Breton represents revelating, terroir-driven Cabernet Francs and Chenins. Wines with juice, freshness, and a lot of spice. The rugged French north is tangible in the entry-level collection, but the glouglou factor is complemented by quality without compromise. The bottles are cheerfully decorated by cartoonist Michel Tolmer. An addition to the must-have factor of the Breton wines.
