The Wine
La Ritourelle (which seems to mean song or refrain, hopefully not the one by Sebastien Tellier) is an uncommonly delicious and elegant rosé from our friends Pierre and Catherine Breton in Bourgueil. 100% Cabernet Franc, of course.  The wine shows beautiful aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, peach skin, citrus peel and rose. The palate is bright and refreshing with raspberry, orange zest, citrus, white pepper and stone flavors. It's light in body but with lovely length and density and a pretty finish of berry fruits and minerals.

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.
