Bret Brothers Juliénas La Bottière

Juliénas is one of the northernmost Crus of the Beaujolais. Bottière is a beautiful terroir! This is a throwback to classic Beaujolais from another era. Fermented with 100% whole clusters, carbonic fermentation, and a slow press. The sugars finished in Burgundian barrel. An illuminated, bright wine, with delicate aromas that invite one to taste its nectar.

Jean-Philippe and Jean-Guillaume Bret

Jean-Guillaume and Jean-Philippe Bret loved coming for holidays to their grandparents vineyard as chldren. This love led them to decide to study viticulture and oenology. Having gained experience in the wider wine world for eight years, they returned to Burgundy and took over La Soufrandiere in 2000. The started their own label, Bret Brothers, in 2001.

 

Before the return of the two young men, the grapes at la Soufrandiere were sold to the cave cooperative. This was stopped in 1998 in preparation for the change in direction envisioned by the two brothers. The estate was converted to organic viticulture in 2003. Their aim is to make great wines that express the terroir, primarily from Chardonnay.

 

Their ambitious objective adheres to rigorous specifications, using small plots of old vines farmed by passionate vignerons on specific terroirs. This allows them to choose the best grapes from soils they wish to express. The commissioned grapes are hand harvested by the two brothers themselves. Many of the vines are old, with some up to 50 years of age. This drives the intensity of flavour that they consistently produce.
