French Vine is the exclusive importer and distributor of Leclerc Briant organic Champagne in Australia.
Leclerc Briant has a rich history that dates back over one hundred and forty years. The unique identity of the house was built through generation after generation of the Leclerc family who, thanks to their inquisitive and inventive nature and their openness to change, paved the way for organic and biodynamic agriculture in Champagne today.
At Leclerc Briant, making Champagne is a gentle, natural process carried out with respect for the wine itself, without trying to alter nature in any way.
The house’s winemaking is led by Hervé Jestin, an acclaimed winemaker and Champagne expert. As an oenologist, a proponent of geo-gravity, and the authority on biodynamics in Champagne, Hervé’s work has set the standard both for growing biodynamic grapes and for biodynamic winemaking in the region.
From the moment the grapes are pressed to the second the bottles of champagne are disgorged, every wine is respected and listened to and thus is able to express its own particular personality of each vintage.
The bold and inventive spirit of the Leclerc family lives on today, continuing the tradition of producing biodynamic wines, not so much as an aim in and of itself, but rather, as a means of creating the highest possible quality champagnes.
