"We want our wines to taste like where they come from" is a mantra at Bret Brothers. 'Le Clos de Grand-Père' namesake is the one-hectare plot of 50-year-old vines that once belonged to the Bret Brothers Grandfather. This Chardonnay is a deep gold colour that lures you into a pear and vanilla treat. It is lush with aromas and flavours of tropical fruits and a glorious crunch of acidity followed by a very long finish. The vines here are grown in clay with rocky-hard limestone terroir on the lower slopes of Pouilly-Vinzelles. The grapes are hand-harvested, and soft whole bunch pressed, then fermented with natural yeast in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged for 11 months in old oak; the youngest barrels are ten years old.

Jean-Phillipe 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. 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."
