Catherine and Pierre Breton champion the cause for Biodynamic viticulture, which is no mean feat in the northerly climes of the Loire valley. Ultra organic care means they avoid chemical fertilisers and weed killers, restrict yields to 40-45 hl/ha and harvest by hand. The Bretons use indigenous yeasts and their desire for natural winemaking comes through strong in their resistance to the use of sulphur, with typically 10mg/l added at bottling to many cuvees, although some are bottled without sulphur at all, and they are all bottled unfiltered.
