Wine Geek Recommended
Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Dilettante “Dabbler” is a project started by Pierre’s wife, Catherine Breton. Similar to the Trinch but vinified using whole cluster, carbonic maceration without sulfur. Another wine meant for immediate consumption, low alcohol, low-sulfur, pure Cabernet Franc. Aged in cement “eggs” and bottled unfiltered in the Spring after harvest.
The Bretons farm eleven hectares of vines just east of Bourgueil in the village of Restigné. They produce Chinon and Bourgueil, as well as a bit of Vouvray, creating honest wines for both early consumption and longer aging. The Bretons first introduced biodynamic practices into their viticulture in 1994, just after receiving their organic certification in 1991. In fact, they have become international icons for the natural wine movement in an area where the climate and soil can make organic viticulture difficult.
