Catherine and Pierre Breton farm eleven hectares of vines just east of Bourgueil in the village of Restigné. The Bretons first introduced biodynamic practices into their viticulture in 1994, just after receiving their organic certification in 1991.  They have become international icons for the natural wine movement in an area where the climate and soil can make organic viticulture difficult.

Tasting Notes

Fresh red berry fruit on the nose.  The palate is very accessible with lots of juicy ripe fruit flavours, smooth soft tannins and pleasing fresh acidity.    

Method

“Trinch” is named after a German expression meaning “cheers” championed by the poet and philosopher Rabelais. Trinch is a Cabernet Franc from younger vines growing on gravel soil. It is vinified in stainless steel with a cold maceration. It is made for early consumption and typically has very accessible fruit, soft tannins and low alcohol. Bottled in the Spring after harvest.
