Bourgueil Trinch! Cabernet Franc Catherine & Pierre Breton, biodynamic, crunchy, youthful, fruity Loire valley red wine. This delightful little number is classic Bourgueil, with bright red fruits, soft tannins and a touch of liquorice. Versatile and not too heavy, this is a perfect summer red, or for light lunches of charcuterie and coarse pâté. The name Trinch comes from a German expression meaning cheers, derived from the sound that glasses make when they clink together. The grapes come from younger vines vinified in stainless steel with a cold maceration to preserve the character of fruit. Fermented with indigenous yeasts and bottled with a minimum of sulphur.

Catherine and Pierre Breton have been running their biodynamic wine estate just north of Restigné since 1997.

In total Catherine and Pierre Breton own around 15 hectares of vines in the areas of Bourgeuil and Chinon.  Their wines are natural all the way and represent their respect for the land.  The viticulture is scrupulously natural, avoiding all chemical fertilisers and weed killers.  They restrict yields to approximately 40-45 hl/ha (although some cuvées are below 35 hl/ha).  They naturally harvest by hand.

In the cellars, the grapes are treated according to terroir.  The gravelly soils go into stainless steel vats.  The grapes from clay-limestone vineyards are fermented in old oak vats.  Only indigenous yeasts are used.  Theydon;t filter at all.  Sulphur is severely restricted with most cuvées receiving only 10 mg/l at bottling.  Their reds are excellent, but the dry Vouvray is one of our favourite expressions of Chenin and represents outstanding value for money.

    After enjoying other wines from Catherine and Pierre Breton, I threw a bottle of “Trinch!” into a recent order out of curiosity. On pouring I knew we were in for a treat – the most incredibly dense, vivid violet colour, a punch in the nose then bunches of red fruits and blueberries on the palate, with bags of structure from perfectly balanced tannins. The bottle was gone in a flash. Amazing wine for just £18!
