A highly-skilled vigneron, Jean-Marie Berthier has been crafting dry yet fruity Sancerre with distinctive mineral notes that the appellation is known for for years alongside his Pouilly Fumé and Coteaux du Giennois wines.  He is helped by his sons Clément and Florian who spent their first years in the trade working for some of the most prestigious estates in Burgundy and New Zealand.  Together, with their father’s knowledge of the land and tradition and their utilization of the best winemaking practices they have crafted wines that will be enjoyed by both traditionalists and novices alike.
