The Berthier family has vineyards in Coteaux-du-Giennois (Domaine de Montbenoît of 10.5 ha and Domaine de l'Oselier), but also in Sancerre (Domaine des Clairneaux in Saint-Gemme, in the very north of the appellation). In addition, they also make a Pouilly-Fumé and even a Champagne. We are dealing here with versatile and very enterprising winemakers. Today, the company is run by the two sons of Jean-Marie, the founder. Clément, the elder, works in the cellar and Florian, the younger, in the vineyard.
Remarkably, the quality of their wines is always excellent, as is that of their entire production. They only work with two grape varieties: pinot noir and sauvignon blanc. Clément Berthier: Each year, the striking differences of each terroir are highlighted. To bring out the best in these terroirs, we decided to work with a single variable: the soil.
