Where and How?
This is biodynamically farmed Cabernet Franc grown on gravel and clay-limestone soils.
The grapes are destemmed, and left to macerate for 18 days at cool temperatures to preserve fruity aromas. The fermentation takes place naturally, and the wine ages in foudres for eight months before being bottled unfined, unfiltered and with just a touch of sulphites.
The Winemaker: Catherine & Pierre Breton
When a bottle of Breton appears on the table in natural wine circles, everyone leans back and smiles; these are some of the most comforting and enjoyable wines out there. Their emblematic cuvée, La Dilettante, achieves many of the aspects we all dream about in a bottle of wine: namely drinkability (or scrap that, glugability) and fun.
The importance of fun in a bottle of wine cannot be underestimated: both the drinking of it, but also in the making of it. When we arrive at the Bretons’ cellar, it’s smiles all around. Likewise in the vineyard; picking might be quite a brutal task, but here it’s one that’s carried out with music blasting on the speakers and jokes being cracked. When we photograph Catherine and Pierre, Pierre grabs a bunch of grapes and stuffs them in Catherine’s face and they giggle, still youngsters in love.
