2012 Bourgueil “Clos Sénéchal”

Catherine & Pierre Breton

2012 Bourgueil “Clos Sénéchal” Catherine & Pierre Breton - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



The Bretons pretty much wrote the book on natural wine, or at least the chapter on Cabernet Franc, and their quaffing cuvées are now stuff of legend. Don’t forget, though, that they also make quite serious terroir wines that are dense, dark, and delicious, meant for aging, like this Clos Sénéchal that at five years old is just beginning to show us what it’s got.
