  • Catherine and Pierre Breton grow, vint and bottle Cabernet Franc uncompromisingly. They practice biodynamic agriculture, use minimal sulfur, ferment with indigenous yeasts and bottle unfiltered. On the Paris bistro/wine bar circuit, they’re rock stars. Wierdly, the local Loire slang for Cab Franc is actually "breton." The tank-aged Franc de Pied is bottled from ungrafted vines grown in gravel and limestone.
