Clos de la Briderie sits on the right bank of the Loire River and has been family run since 1854 by the Giraults. In 1994, the winery converted their 25 acres to biodynamic farming, allowing for unique flavors to shine through. This Crémant is made up of 40% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay, 20% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The gently pressed juice is fermented with the grapes' own wild yeasts before aging for two years.
