History & Background
Domaine des Bretaudieres, producer of “La Berriere” is situated 20km south of Nantes in the Cotes de Grandlieu near the lake called 'Lac de Grand Lieu' which has an impact on the climate of the 195 acres vineyard. The Estate was built prior to 1796. Not far from the Atlantic Ocean, the maritime influence is notable and helps, together with the lake, to mature the grapes earlier than the rest of the Muscadet area. Sylvain, together with his wife Magaly, continued the hard labor of his father and grandfather but with a new style. They both are in their early forties and have a great depth of knowledge for making traditional Muscadet aged on their lees.
