Chinon Les Beaux Monts Breton 2021, 100% Cabernet Franc, Biodynamic production, classic Loire flavours and elegance.  The fruit is de-stemmed to capture the full fruity essence of Cabernet Franc.  The nose has plenty of violets and Chinon Les Beaux Monts is lush, tender and silky on the palate with black cherry, currant and pomegranate with earthy notes.  There is a nice classic Cab Franc herbaceousness and minerality bringing up the rear.  A super glass of classy Loire red wine, would go with pretty much anything.

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.
