Bertrand’s son Pascal inherited the house in 1990 and continued his father’s legacy, boldly adopting biodynamic production on a full half hectare of vines. He persevered for more than 10 years and, with a handful of like-minded vignerons, paved the way for what was to become the biodynamic movement in Champagne. Following Pascal’s sudden death, an American couple Mark Nunnelly and Denise Dupré acquired Leclerc Briant in 2012. Lovers of the French art de vivre, Mark and Denise fell in love with Leclerc Briant, its history and its philosophy. They took ownership of the house in partnership with Frédéric Zeimett, a native of Champagne with vast experience in the world of fine wine, who is now the Managing Director. Together, this team crafted a vision to breathe new life into Leclerc Briant – to restore its soul and to reclaim its place as a leader in Champagne. The bold and inventive spirit of the Leclerc family lives on today, continuing the tradition of producing Biodynamic wines, not so much as an aim in and of itself, but rather, as a means of creating the highest possible quality Champagnes.
