Producer

The domaine of Jean-Marc Brocard began as just one hectare, a gift from his father-in-law when he married into a winegrowing family. He has since expanded to 200 hectares, of which eighty are biodynamic, and is widely recognised as one of Chablis’s leading producers. The approach is one of minimal intervention in both vineyard and winery: cultivation is practically organic throughout, with ploughing in place of herbicides, predators instead of pesticides, manure rather than fertiliser, and as little spraying as the grapes’ health requires. The results are pure, unadorned expressions of the great chalk slopes of Chablis.


Vineyard

From the westernmost area of the grands crus, these thirty-year-old vines have a southern exposure and grow on Kimmeridgian soil: alternating layers of limestone and clay/marl. Viticulture is chemical-free.


Winery

The grapes were pneumatically pressed before undergoing temperature controlled fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation was completed and the wine aged in a combination of stainless steel and large oak casks.


Taste

Mineral on the nose with some smoky brioche notes. Elegant and concentrated palate with flavours of stone fruit, real texture and grip, and a lingering finish.
