About the Wine

Decanter says, “Petit Chablis retains the drive and purity of Chablis but in a more accessible way.” This means you can simply relish Petit Chablis by itself, making it your perfect choice for everyday sipping.

Though the renowned mineral character of Chablis is somewhat softer in Petit Chablis, remember that 'Petit' doesn't mean lesser. Some of these wines can easily rival many Chablis.

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, like this amazing Prieure Saint-Come.

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.

2022 was an incredible vintage for Burgundy. Vinous Media blessed this year with a 96 point review, and said: "The style of 2022 is primed for early consumption, more than 2019 or 2020.The 2022 Burgundy vintage offers a bounty for those with a passion for its wines. " 

Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. This Chardonnay, inspired by the elegance of Chablis, boasts a medium yellow hue and a nose of white peach. Its medium body is alive with bright lemon, citrus, and caramel apple flavors, all balanced by refreshing acidity. Clean and versatile, it's perfect with white fish, oysters, or a variety of other dishes, offering a crisp, juicy finish
