Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis
Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay.
The domaine of Jean-Marc Brocard began as just one hectare, a wedding gift from his winegrowing father-in-law. He has since expanded to 200 hectares, of which half are organic or biodynamic, and is widely recognised as one of Chablis’s leading producers. The low-impact approach in the vineyard – ploughing in place of herbicides, predators instead of pesticides, manure rather than fertiliser, and as little spraying as the grapes’ health requires – is matched by a hands-off winemaking philosophy. The results are pure, unadorned expressions of the great chalk slopes of Chablis.
A first class example with the quintessential character of true Chablis. Notes of lemon and white peach on the nose lead onto a palate that is clean and rounded, dry and expressive.
A perfect accompaniment to oysters, seafood and grilled fish.
