Melbourne, VIC

Blake – Charbonnier Selections is a boutique importer and wholesale distributor of premium independent French wines. Our mission is to share our love of wine with Australian connoisseurs, one bottle at a time.

Exclusive French wines from the Loire Valley produced by independent, local, premium winemakers with a true passion for their job. We currently work with Chateau d’Avrillé and are looking at expanding our list of producers in 2022.

In May 1938, Eusèbe Biotteau, an important figure in Angers viticulture, founded the Chateau d'Avrillé vineyard. It extends on 250 hectares of which 200 hectares are vines.

After 50 years of hardwork, Eusèbe Biotteau passed on his passion for wine and vines to his sons and grandsons. Today, the 4th generation perpetuates the story of Château d’Avrillé.

The vine planting is on a schist soil, composed by cabernet franc, sauvignon, pinot noir and chenin. These varied grape varieties are vinified using traditional method.
