R.I.P Christian Chaussard


Yesterday, we found out that Christian Chaussard of Domaine Le Briseau was fatally injured in a tractor accident. A seminal figure in the Loire valley, Christian taught viticulture and oenology at the Lycée Agricole et Viticole d'Amboise for over a decade. In 2002, he founded Domaine Le Briseau with his wife and partner Nathalie Gaubicher, an estate that would gain an international reputation for producing high quality Chenin Blanc, Côt and Pineau D'Aunis. Christian was also president of the A.V.N (Association des Vins Naturels) for many years, though he had just stepped down from the position in July. More than that, he was a good friend.

Last night, we drank many of Christian's wines in his honor. We send all our love to Nathalie and the kids.
