Wine maker notes
The 37 year-old ploughed vines of our SAINT-VÉRAN CLIMAT 1/2 En Combe » lie on the outstanding slope of Chasselas, facing South. They draw minerality and fruit from this great terroir. The high level of iron oxide gives the wine its potential for ageing. Always a little austere when young, this is a great wine able to open up after 2 to 3 years in bottle.

La Soufrandiere, an old estate in Vinzelles in Southern Maconnais (Southern Burgundy), was bought in 1947 by A.J. Bret, a Medical Professor. The surface under vines was only one hectare (2.47 acres) all in the 1/2 appellation d’origine controlee » Pouilly-Vinzelles Climat ”Les Quarts”. The only remaining testimony of its past viticultural life was a 1/2 tinailler » (a traditional Maconnais house used as a vat-room) complete with an old-fashioned wine-press. A.J. BRET started to enlarge La Soufrandiere by acquiring plots of vines next to those already existing. All the vines were then worked by share-farmers (share-cropping) and the resulting crop was brought to and commercialised by the local Cooperative (Cave Cooperative de Vinzelles). Jean-Paul BRET - A.J.’s and Louise Bret’s third son in a family of four children - became manager of La Soufrandiere in 1969. The surface under vines was to reach 4.55 ha (11.11 acres) of which 4 ha of Pouilly-Vinzelles Climat ”Les Quarts” and 0.55 ha of Pouilly-Vinzelles Climat ”Les Longeays”. In 1998, La Soufrandiere withdrew from the Cave Cooperative de Vinzelles in anticipation of the arrival of Jean-Guillaume and Jean-Philippe, two of Jean-Paul et Marie-Rose BRET’s three sons. A year of transition and revolution, 2000 was the first vintage vinified, aged and bottled by La Soufrandiere. From the 2001 vintage onwards, the grapes picked at la Soufrandiere have been sold to BRET BROTHERS who market the wines from the estate.
