"Trinch! is the sound in French of two glasses clinking together, there could not be a better name for this wine than that. Pierre and Catherine Breton have rightfully earned their spot at the top of red wine production in the Loire and all of France for that matter. They are champions of organic agriculture and are at the forefront of making wines with the absolute minimum dosage of sulpher. For those of you not yet on the cabernet franc bandwagon, you must promise to take all of the ideas and notions you have about the grape and its wines in the Loire and throw them out the window. Next, pop a bottle of this wine in the fridge for 10-15 minutes, then pull out its synthetic cork, that's right no "corked" bottles, and get ready for cabernet franc in its most luscious and sexy expression yet. The balmy vintage of 2003 has imparted a juiciness and texture rarely found here, and we are all the luckier for it. Sexy is a word, refreshing is another, how about fun, supple, rich, versatile, I could go on but the bottom line is that this is tasty stuff. You will rejoice in its ability to go with just about any food you can throw at it, you will revel in its rich currant-y fruit with hints of lavender, you will be in awe of how quickly the bottom of the bottle seems to show up.
