Catherine & Pierre Breton, Les Beaux Monts, Chinon 2019
Catherine & Pierre Breton
A very drinkable, elegant style of Cabernet Franc, typical of Chinon. Fine dusty tannins and savoury characteristics underpinned by darker inky blue fruit flavours which provide more depth to this lighter bodied style. There is good concentration and length with a freshness and chalky minerality.
The grapes for this Chinon are sourced from the village of Beaumont. They are farmed according to Biodynamic and Organic principles. The vinification and elevage take place in wooden vats and barriques. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered after one year in wood, in the early autumn before harvest.
Catherine and Pierre Breton are the real life bon vivants vignerons of the Loire. They are passionate about what they do sharing it with others, and they entertain with a generosity and charm. The Bretons farm eleven hectares of vines just east of Bourgueil in the village of Restigne. They produce Chinon and Bourgueil, as well as a bit of Vouvray, creating honest wines for both early consumption and longer aging. The Bretons first introduced biodynamic practices into their viticulture in 1994, just after receiving their organic certification in 1991. Recently, they started the three-year process of seeking biodynamic certification. In fact, they have become international icons for the natural wine movement in an area where the climate and soil can make organic viticulture difficult.
