Biodynamically farmed old-vine Cabernet Franc in different hillside parcels on clay-limestone soils. Hand-harvest and destemming, 3-week natural vinification and malolactic in wooden vats, 12 months aging in wooden vats and barriques. Bottled unfiltered with little to no added sulfur.
Catherine and Pierre Breton: natural wine pioneers, masters of Bourgueil Cabernet Franc and close friends of Chabrol. Domaine Breton is a century-old family operation that has been bottling wines under their own name since 1985. In the late eighties, they started their conversion to organic and later biodynamic farming, and already in the early nineties, they had fully adopted the “nothing added-nothing taken away” approach to winemaking. These bon-vivants are beloved throughout the wine world and their domaine is one of our favorite pit-stops during our wine trips.
