The Wine
With a riper sense of blackberry and cassis than possessed by the cuvees that preceded it in this year’s Breton line-up as well as lovely hints of peony perfume, their 2009 Bourgueil Clos Senechal – tasted assembled from used barrels – fills the mouth with generous, juicy fruit, texturally tender, and underlain by cocoa powder and crushed stone.


Catherine and Pierre Breton have been running their 15 hectare vineyard along organic lines since 1991; they’ve been biodynamic since 1997. Located between Tours and Samur in the Loire Valley, they specialize in red wines from the Chinon and Bourgueil appellations. They use indigenous yeasts for their fermentations, and only the minimum use of sulfur dioxide (typically 10 mg/litre of SO2 added at bottling). All wines are unfiltered, and the goal is to make wines that express their terroirs and vintage.
