The Wine

Delicate – Honeydew – Fresh – Vibrant

From Catherine and Pierre Breton, this is a vibrant fresh style, side-stepping from the previous slightly funkier style of 2016s. This vintage of pierres rousses has undergone partial malolactic fermentation which gives the wine a lovely texture while the bright acidity from the chenin blanc gives a freshness and vibrancy. Hints of cantaloupe, stone fruit are underpinned with a Chablis-like minerality.

The ideal Chenin Blanc for your aperitifs. Its charming, direct, convivial personality will captivate your guests and accompany your most complex seafood dishes. Pierres rousses is the lieu-dit of its Vouvray terroir, from 55 year old vines.

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.
