AOP Chablis 1er Cru

Domaine Brocard 2017

€870 Flacon de 10cl

Discover one of the finest Premiers Crus of Chablis. Montée de Tonnerre is one of Chablis’ historical climats and takes its name from the old Roman road that ran between Auxerre and Tonnerre. Located alongside plots with Grand Cru status, Montée de Tonnerre is one of the most reputed Premiers Crus climats of Chablis. This straw-gold coloured Premier Cru Chablis displays an elegant nose with slightly buttery notes over acacia and orange blossom aromas. On the palate, this is a mouth-filling, lively and opulent wine which is still fresh at the same time.

Winemaker

Jean-Marc Brocard

From his many years of training alongside the winemaker Louis Petit, Jean-Marc Brocard learned patience and respect and many precious lessons about the soil, subsoil, the vines and life in general. Now, in turn, he has begun passing on this wisdom to his son Julien. Having joined his father in 1995, Julien is successfully pursuing the development of the estate, which is one of the region's largest for organic winegrowing.
