About the Wine

Jean-Marc Brocard is a big name in the wine industry. Born in Côte d’Or, Jean-Marc was raised in a family of farmers, wine runs through his veins. In 1973, he learned the wine biz guided by his stepfather and cousin, and some years later, he settled in Préhy and founded his emblematic winery, Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard. Today, he works with his son, Julien, who joined the team in 1990. Julien has an innovative and sustainable approach to wine, he started the conversion to organic and biodynamic farming and works continually to deliver the highest-quality wines.

These wines perfectly combine traditional winemaking with a more modern approach. The wines are crafted like a classic Chablis, vinified in vats, and aged in neutral large oak foudres for a year before bottling. The Brocard family had made a name for their vivid, classic, mineral, great value Chablis.

Chablis is loved by wine geeks and everyday drinkers alike for its characteristic minerality and finesse. Chablis' distinct terroir is due to a unique soil type found only in Chablis, Champagne, and southern England called Kimmeridgian. An ancient soil, 180 million-year-old to be exact, made up of clay and limestone that contains fossilized oyster shells. These fossilized sea creatures are attributed to Chablis being such an excellent pairing for oysters and fresh seafood. In addition to the minerality.

Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay.  On the nose, notes of lemon, yellow fruits. The mouth is wrapped, balanced, and tangy. A specific wine while gluttony. 

Reviews

Softly spiced citrus fruits on the nose, this feels well-handled with clean and pink grapefruit flavours driving the palate forward. It settles on the mid-palate, giving juice and concentration of flavour which lingers on to a long finish. From 70-year-old vines on Kimmeridgian soil. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030. ~92 Decanter

Lemon and lime aromas here with crushed stones and chalky notes, too. The palate has a very taut feel with succulent grapefruit and orange flavors. Drink or hold. ~90 James Suckling
