Catherine and Pierre Breton have been running their biodynamic estate just north of Restigné since 1997. In total, they own around 15 hectares around the area, also in Bourgeuil and Chinon. Their wines scream the utmost respect for the land. The viticulture is scrupulously natural, avoiding all chemical fertilisers and weedkillers and harvesting by hand. In the cellars, the grapes are treated according to terroir: gravelly soils going into stainless steel, whereas grapes from clay-limestone vineyards are fermented in old oak vats. Only indigenous yeasts are used, filtration avoided, and sulphur is severely restricted with most cuvées receiving just 10 mg/l at bottling.
This delicious wine shows bright red fruits, soft tannins and a touch of liquorice. Versatile and not too heavy, this is a perfect summer red. The name Trinch comes from a German expression meaning cheers, derived from the sound that glasses make when they clink together. The grapes come from younger vines vinified in stainless steel with a cold maceration to preserve the character of the fruit.
