Clos de la Briderie sits on the right bank of the Loire River, between Blois and Tours, facing the Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire. The Girault family has been making wine here since 1854, so it was only natural for Vincent Girault to continue in his family’s footsteps. At the age of 18, he oversaw his first harvest and began to blend his own wines that reflect his passion for the terroir. Just before their retirement in 1994, his parents converted the ten hectares of Clos de la Briderie to a biodynamic vineyard, and Vincent takes great care in how he farms the land. He believes biodynamic farming allows true discovery of the unique flavors of the fruit, and his wines carry Demeter, Ecocert, and Biodyvin certifications. His crémants are light, fresh and elegant — and a great value.
