Clément and Florian Berthier combine traditional and modern-day practices to carry out the mission conferred upon them by their father: to preserve the family heritage with the same diligence. Our family has been living in the Centre-Loire region for several generations.
In the early 1980’s Jean Marie created Domaine des Clairneaux in the Sancerre appellation.
The domaine was expanded in 1998 with the acquisition of Domaine de Montbenoit in the Coteaux du Giennois. After travelling the world, today’s generation has now returned to the family’s terroirs. Clément, who has worked as a cellar master in the USA, is now responsible for vinification and sales at the domaine. Florian, building on his experience gained in Burgundy and New Zealand, is now in charge of the work in the vineyards.
Since 2015, we have been developing our activity in the North of the Coteaux du Giennois appellation, in the village of Beaulieu sur Loire. Today we work in partnership with talented wine growers in order to develop our know-how in appellations new to us in the Centre-Loire such as Pouilly-Fumé and Menetou-Salon.
