About This Wine
When you drink the sparkling wines of Chateau de Breze, you’re drinking history.
Read historic accounts of the 15th century, and you’ll learn that King Rene of Anjou offered extremely laudatory comments about the wines. They were served in virtually all the royal courts of Europe. It was not uncommon for Chateau de Breze wines to be exchanged for the just-as-coveted Chateau d’Yquem sweet wines.
By the 1600s, the white wines of the estate were so well known throughout Europe that they were referred to as “Chenin de Breze.” It was almost as if no one else’s Chenin Blanc-based wines — table or sparkling — mattered.
There’s no doubt the estate is a special place, with a terroir like no other. That terroir is a key quality contributor, and enables Arnaud Lambert — the man behind the label today — to craft crisp, elegant, floral and fruity sparkling wines like the Chateau de Breze Brut.
