Domaine des BERIOLES - Saint Pourcain
Berioles estate, the renewal of Saint Pourcain, Loire Valley
Berioles family estate is located in Cesset in the vineyard of Saint Pourçain (Loire Valley, in the Bourbonnais). The Teissedre family produces great white wines made from chardonnay and tressallier grapes, and great red wines made from gamay and pinot noir.
The estate's history began in 1976, when Olivier Teissedre acquired a farm to grow cereals. In 1989, his wife decided to plant vines. In 2011, their son, Jean Teissedre joined the estate. His BTS viti-oeno in his pocket, he perfected in areas in Sancerre and Beaujolais. At 26, he returned back to Loire and settled for good on the family estate. He was joined in 2015 by his sister, Sophie Roux, and his brother-in-law, Jerome Roux. Both also have a solid viticultural background and all three have the ambition to make fine wines from Loire. With the family estate which presents a big potential of old vines planted on the best soils of the appellation.
The estate covers a small area of 15 ha and almost finishes its organic conversion (with strong biodynamic orientation) in 2019.
The particularity of the domain is to produce white wines based on the tressallier grape variety. It is rare to find white wines mostly made of tressallier, it is however the case of the cuvee "Tressaille" : 100% tressalier, thus outside appellation (to be in AOP Saint Pourcain , white wines must be made with a minimum of 50% chardonnay). For reds, it is at least 40% Gamay and 25% Pinot Noir.
The Saint Pourcain vineyard is one of the oldest vineyards in France. Since its classification in AOC in 2009, the appellation has gained notoriety and the wines of Saint Pourçain, formerly rather light and not suitable for ageing, are found today on the tables of many great restaurants.
The last vintages of Berioles estate show a real mastery of the vines and winemaking, and we are proud to have discovered them in 2019.
