Our estate is located in the village of Passy sur Marne, on the right bank in the heart of the Champagne region of La vallée de la Marne. Our very sunny hillside is exposed South South-East, all on a clayey-limestone soil. We grow a majority of Pinot Meunier, but also Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Our hand-picked grapes are still pressed in a traditional Coquard.
Winegrowers for 4 generations, the estate has been managed for 10 years by a family duo, Laurent and Dominique Biard, brother and sister. Laurent is in charge of the vineyard, creating his wines and Dominique is in charge of marketing and sales.
It was our great grandparents who started in 1947 by producing 1947 bottles that year. Our great grandfather André Goret produced the first bottle, with the "Goret-Chabrol" brand, which is the beginning of the house. The story continued with our grandmother Yvette who created the champagne brand "Loyaux-Goret". Our grandmother had two children, including her daughter Jacqueline who married Michel, and together they created the Biard-Loyaux brand.
Today, it is a great pride for us to be part of the continuity of this history.
We have been members of the Independent Winegrowers for about fifteen years and produce six vintages. Over the years we have increased production from 20,000 to 35,000 bottles in just under 20 years.
The important thing for us was to continue the adventure of the family estate between brother and sister. We cultivate our vines in accordance with our values: authenticity, sharing and tradition. Our work therefore consists in ensuring that the blending of these grape varieties produces a wine that resembles us each year.
During the harvest we welcome and accommodate about twenty people at the estate. Our hand-picked grapes are still pressed in a traditional Coquard (old-fashioned), which requires a lot of work at harvest time but makes us all the more proud when we create our wines.
