Bret Brothers La Soufrandière - Climat ‘Le Quarts’

We think this terroir is one of the best in Burgundy and Climat ‘Le Quarts’ is a beautiful and wonderfully well-balanced expression with its citrusy mineral nose and complex and rich mouthfeel.

The earth here is soft, aerated and smells of liquorice. It is quite simply alive. The Climat ‘Le Quarts’ is undoubtedly the best of appellation Pouilly-Vinzelles with a magical southeast facing position for the 40 to 68-year-old vines of Chardonnay to flourish in the living clay and limestone soil.

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.

Bret Brothers

Since the 2013 vintage, they have been expanding their range with the fine wines from the Beaujolais region (Fleurie and Morgon), magical terroirs too long overlooked. They select small plots of old vines being worked by enthusiastic wine-growers, on very specific terroir.
