Founded in 1945, Ange Breton breathed the soul and spirit into his champagne house. By passing on his lifelong passion to his children, several leaders have successively brought life and growth to the family business . Today, Reynald and Fatima Breton share the same love of the vine and have successfully ensured that the domain has developed and evolved.
Over time, they have perfected, developed, adapted, and will continue to leave their best to their successors.
Breton & Fils are renowned for their attentive relationship to their vineyards which they have seen flourish and which has seen them evolve. Whether it's ecological responsibility or the methods of making their champagnes, they always make sure to work with integrity and responsibility, with a view to preserving the heritage of which they are a part of.
With their history and experience, they have learned to know exactly the aromatic palette of each of their vines.
Today, they are able to sublimate the qualities of each vintage in order to perfect their blends and thus, offer inimitable champagnes.
Today Breton et Fils currently have 17 hectares, composed of 3 hectares 50 of pinot noir, 7 hectares of pinot meunier and 6 hectares 50 of chardonnay.
Côte des Blancs takes its name from the grape varieties that are planted there; all are white grape varieties. There is mainly Chardonnay, which is one of the dominant grape varieties authorized in Champagne, occupying 95% of the land. Other smaller white grape varieties complete the land such as Arbane, Pinot Blanc or Petit Meslier.
It is a terroir mainly composed of chalky soil, which keeps warm during winter and easily retains water during summer and allows to form a water reservoir that can store up to 400 litres of water in a square meter. With this soil very rich in water, the plants are therefore sufficiently hydrated, even in the middle of summer when the months are quite dry.
The chardonnay of the region bring acidity, while remaining a delicate wine. In general, The Côte des Blancs gives rise to prized champagnes, imbued with vivacity and spirit, with light and delicate aromas, symbols of finesse and elegance.
Located in the Marne, it extends south of Épernay over approximately 20 kilometres, for an area of approximatively 3,320 hectares. The hillsides are mainly oriented to the east, which shelters the vines, on the hillsides, from the prevailing westerly winds. The Grauves vineyard, on the other side of the coast, is however partly oriented to the west. The hillsides are dominated by forests.
To note the cote de Sezanne is a continuity of la cote des blancs, it is a small area where chardonnay is the best as well because chalky soil but heavier soil clay rich which give to the champagne a taste richer, rounder and more mellow than the cote des blancs.
