"Chief among the best Loire red winemakers is Pierre Breton. Breton practices organic viticulture and uses only a minimal dosage of sulfur. The wine is classified as made from "organic agriculture." The cuvee Les Galichets comes from 50-year-old vines grown on gravely soil and is at the same time elegant, mineral-driven and seductive."
