Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis 1er Cru Vau de Vey
Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay.
Vegan & Organic.
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.
"The palate is well balanced with blackcurrant leaf and a touch of spice on the entry, a fine bead of acidity with a poised, and quite energetic finish, a tang of white pepper that lingers on the aftertaste. Very fine, but it will need two or three years in bottle." - Neal Martin
On the palate, its aromas retain for a long time their freshness, their purity. Dry and of a perfect finesse.
