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-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 is now managed by a family duo for 10 years, Laurent and Dominique Biard, brother and sister. Laurent takes care of the vineyard, creating his wines and Dominique takes care of the marketing, it is our great grandparents who started in 1947 producing 1947 bottles that year, our great grandfather André Goret produced the first bottle, with the brand "Goret-Chabrol" 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, so her daughter Jacqueline married Michel, and together they created the Biard-Loyaux brand, today it is our great pride, the continuity of this story. We have been members of the Independent Winegrowers for about fifteen years, we produce six vintages and we have increased production from 20,000 to 35,000 bottles since the estate was taken over in 2005.
What was important for us was to perpetuate the family estate between brother and sister. We cultivate our vines in accordance with our values: authenticity, sharing and tradition. It is a perpetual search to blend these grape varieties to find each year a wine that resembles us. During the harvest we welcome and accommodate about twenty people at the estate. Our manually 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 for the creation of our wines.
