ADD

The “Galichets” in question are gravelly soils home to fifty-year-old Cabernet Franc vines, which the Bretons farm biodynamically and coax into producing this delightful little red—using only the most natural methods, of course. The Revue du Vin de France aptly described it as having “depth, pleasure, and terroir,” and I’ll add that the pleasure really takes the upper hand in this cuvée. Not only does it demonstrate the merits of a nondogmatic approach to noninterventionist viticulture and vinification in a dynamic environment amid ever-changing
market demands due to shifting trends in mainstream consumer culture, but also it is a damn tasty drink. –Anthony Lynch
