C&P Breton Bourgueil 'Les Perrieres' 2000

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 2000 ‘Les Perrieres’ is earthy and bright, showing notes of stewed red fruit, wet leaves, bell pepper, and spice. Already developing nicely, with some serious life still ahead of it-- a classic!
