Tasting note from from 18.11.2020, Copyright Marian Henß


Behind Bret Brothers is the La Soufrandière winery of the Bret family. Under the name Bret Brothers, they market wines that are produced from purchased grapes. Harvesting and processing as well as partly also the vineyard work is done by the family and their team.
The appellation is located in the south of Viré. The small parcel covers only 0.3 hectares and is located at an altitude of 200 metres. Facing east and situated on the lower part of the slope, it belongs to the early ripening plots. The vine age ranges from 55 to 75 years. The soil, with clay and alluvial sand, is perhaps not the typical terroir of a Chardonnay from Burgundy. Harvest runs to 100% by hand, followed by whole cluster pressing and fermentation and ageing in 600l and 228l French oak barrels for eleven months.


Light golden yellow, green reflections


The play of aromas ranges from green to yellow. Juicy lemons, ripe peach and green Granny Smith. Vegetable notes also remind a little of vegetable stock, but especially of fennel and anise. On the nose, you don't miss the lack of lime in the soil at first. However, the wine seems leaner and less concentrated like comparable bottlings of the same producer.


On the palate, it then presents itself with purity and drinking flow. The acidity is present, but not dominant. It shows itself racy and slim, but seems a little softer and more well-behaved. Rather an elegant and delicate representative of its grape variety and origin. Unpretentious Chardonnay enjoyment. The flavours of the nose come out excellently and end in a medium finish.
