Throughout the year, we work our vines so that they can offer the best aromas, aromas of its own. The Domaine Jean-Paul and Jean-Luc Millet (SCEA DU BRIOU) currently sells 4 vintages.
Two varietals are used to produce our wines: the sauvignon grape for our white wines, the pinot noir grape for our red and rosé wines. These two varieties are the most adapted to our climate and our terroir. Sauvignon represents about 75% of our production, compared to 25% for pinot noir.
Our vineyards are located in the villages of Veaugues and Crézancy en Sancerre, on clay-limestone soils typical of the west-Sancerre ("cherries" and "caillottes").
