Catherine and Pierre Breton’s vineyard is a result of intergenerational and family work since 1886. They cultivate two single grape varieties from the Loire Valley, Chenin and Cabernet Franc. Organic farming supports their pursuit of a living balance, mixing ancient alluvial soils, known as Galuches; siliceous clay soils, known as Perrieres or Pierres Rousses; and clay-limestone soils, known as tuffs, in the Bourgueil, Vouvray and Chinon appellations. -Domaine Breton

Vinous 94
Vivid ruby. Classic Chinon nose that’s earthy, savory and meaty, showing notes of plum and tomato. On the palate, flavors of black cherry and licorice, rich and plush, along with velvety tannins, attractive hints of pencil shavings and a long dark mineral finish.
