2019 Breton Val de Loire Rouge Grolleau
This wine in the Breton book is a pure old-vine Grolleau from soils of clay and silex. Expect hints of pepper, tomato leaf, earth, and an explosion of juicy red fruit like raspberry and cherry, plus other little berries that burst under the tooth with brightly flavored nectar. Service with slight chill.
Organic & Biodynamic farming practices.

Catherine and Pierre Breton like to party, and their wines make it easy to party: just one sip feels like an invitation to forget pressing matters and boogie down. Catherine and Pierre Breton are real life bon vivants vignerons of the Loire. They are passionate about what they do, enjoy sharing it with others, and entertain with a generosity and charm. The Bretons farm 11 hectares just east of Bourgueil in the village of Restigné. They produce Chinon, Bourgueil, and a bit of Vouvray, creating honest wines for both early consumption and aging. The Bretons received organic certification in 1991 and recently began the three-year process of seeking biodynamic certification. They’ve become international icons for the natural wine movement in an area where the climate and soil can make organic viticulture difficult.
