"La Dilettante" is sourced from Catherine's parents 5 hectare plot in Vernou sur Brenne comprised of 40 year old vines and is certified biodynamic. Soil is clay and limestone.
Delicate, precise, succulent - a beautiful wine. Honey, lemon, ginger, subtle & energetic.
from Kermit Lynch:
With three decades’ worth of Loire harvests under her belt with her husband, Pierre, plus her own “dabbling” with Chenin Blanc since 2002, Catherine Breton is undeniably an authority on biodynamic farming and natural winemaking. Sixteen years after vinifying her first Vouvray, it appears Catherine is “La Dilettante” no more.
