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

Situated in the largest, and arguably the greatest, 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.


Winery

The grapes were pneumatically pressed before undergoing temperature controlled fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation was completed, and the wine was aged on its lees for eighteen months, in large oak barrels.


Taste

Complex yet very refined, showing some mineral, smoke, flint, lemon and a touch of honeyed complexity. Full-bodied and layered with exquisite flavours and a long finish.
Press ”An exceptionally fresh nose flashes notes of citrus, white peach, citrus and arguably the most obvious Chablis character of any of these 2013s. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension that adds lift to the middle weight flavors that terminate in a precise, citrusy and markedly dry finish.” – 92 points, Burghound, Issue 60
