A lovely surprise of a wine. More info

The cuvée "Clos Sénéchal" comes from 30 to 45-year-old vines planted on a clay-limestone soil on slopes. The grapes are destemmed for alcoholic fermentation, exclusively with native yeast and then malolactic fermentation is carried out. No sulfur is added. The wine is aged in a barrel for 12 to 24 months depending on the vintage. The wine is silky, with precise fruit, and even tends to take its aromas from Pinot over time!

Bourgueil Clos Sénéchal Catherine et Pierre Breton serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Magret de canard, Gigot dagneau, Canard sauce aux truffes.

    Information about domain Catherine et Pierre Breton

    For almost thirty years, Catherine and Pierre Breton’s achievements have been setting a great example in Bourgueil. In 1982, Pierre Breton took over the family’s vines, until then the harvested grapes had been sold to the local wine cooperative. Originally covering ten hectares, there are now fifteen. The soil is worked, and if any compost has to be used, Breton limits the use of sulphur as far as possible to produce wines which are as pure as possible. The domaine has been farmed organically using biodynamic methods since 1992. Grown using massal selection, the vines are hand-picked with small crates so as to avoid any damage to the grapes; the soil is worked and compost is used. Winemaking is carried out without any exogenous yeast, and the wines are not filtered. Sulphites are hardly used and for certain wines are not used at all. Slow ageing in wood barrels makes it possible to control the tannins effectively.
