ADD

Pioneers of natural winemaking in the Loire Valley, Catherine and Pierre Breton do not adhere to dogma. Rather, they seek to make the best wines possible from their terroir, using sustainable farming and noninterventionist winemaking as a means to that end. In other words, they strive to make great wine first, and great natural wine second. Here we have the only Breton cuvée bottled without a drop of added sulfur, but that should neither attract you nor scare you away. Still, if you want to drink a truly compelling Cabernet Franc—broad and well structured, reminiscent of smoky black fruit, spice, and wild bramble—then this is the wine for you. —Anthony Lynch
