Domaine Le Briseau

Domaine Le Briseau

Domaine Le Briseau is located in Coteaux-du-Loir, an area in the north of Touraine. The Domaine was founded in 2002 by Christian-Chaussard, a former soldier and state engineer, together with the Swiss actress, with a winemaker's and sommelier's diploma, Nathalie Gaubicher. They begin their adventure in the wine world with 4 hectares of vineyards that have an average age of 60 years. The vineyards, which in the meantime have become 11 hectares, are mainly planted with chenin blanc and pineau d’aunis, and are found on soils mostly composed of clay and silica on a limestone subsoil. Among the vineyards, after having always adopted the rules of organic farming, biodynamic practices are currently followed, so no pesticides, insecticides or chemical fertilizers; nettle and horsetail decoctions are sprayed on the foliage, copper is used in modest quantities, the vineyards are plowed and the grass is left to grow in the rows. In 2005, Christian and Nathalie start a new trade, called Nana, Vins & Cie, NaNa Vins, for which they buy grapes from trusted farmers, gathered with their team. These grapes are vinified in the same way as our own grapes, in order to produce totally natural wines. In the cellar, fermentations are spontaneous with only indigenous yeasts, fines are not carried out and the filtrations are very light. Since 2012, after Christian's tragic death, Nathalie is the only one to carry on the business, continuing to follow a well-established road made up of sincere and direct wines, involving every little taste-olfactory sensation that they come to offer
