Nested between forests, salt marshes and protected natural landscapes, the domain’s vines have very diverse profiles and benefit from an extremely rich ecosystem. Brem-sur-Mer gets its notion of terroir from the great diversity of its soils, mainly made of silt.
Our vines are planted on very diverse subsoils, made of slate schists, schisty sandstones, rhyolite or granit, depending on the sector. On the domain, the identity of our terroir comes both from the constant presence of quartz – a siliceous stone that us used in biodynamic viticulture – and a pronounced influence of the atlantic ocean. The synergy between our soils, subsoils and the oceanic influence convey delicate saline tones to our wines.
Brem-sur-Mer has always been host to a large number of grape varieties. Today, our vineyard has 5 of these traditionally planted varieties : Chenin, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Négrette and Gamay.
This diversity of both soils and grape varieties is a true opportunity that we have chosen to seize in order to offer a range of wines that reflect the unique bond between a terroir and a grape variety.
