Breton Bourgueil Perrieres
Natural wine has no uniform definition. It is a general term used to describe artisanal wine made using organically and/or biodynamically grown hand-picked grapes which are vinified with little or no intervention. Winemakers often rely on indigenous yeast to catalyse natural fermentation, avoiding the use of any chemicals, additives or sulphites.
The result is wine which is alive, energetic, vibrant and unexpected – a welcomed contrast to the industrial practices of the wine industry.
Name of Estate/Domaine:
Catherine & Pierre Breton
100% Cabernet Franc.
Delicate aromas of chalky cassis and redcurrant, very floral and mineral with black pepper and earth notes. The palate is silky with soft chalky tannins enveloped by berry fruits, earth, musk and mineral flavours. The finish is long, elegant and intriguing
Warm and temperate with a significant amount of rainfall throughout the year. The terroir is on siliceous soil at the surface, followed by clay-limestone beneath, and old vines give very low yields.
