C&P Breton Bourgueil 'Les Perrieres' 1989

Deemed by Kermit Lynch as ‘real life bon vivants,’ Catherine and Pierre Breton bring passion, and life into every bottle produced from their 11 hectares of Loire based vines. The 1989 ‘Les Perrieres’ shows a beautiful rusty red hue in the glass, exploding with aromas of green pepper, tobacco, wet earth, and tart berries. Concentrated and grippy, with a thought-provoking finish-- still alive as ever!
