AOP Chablis

Domaine Brocard 2017

€490 Bottle of 10cl

Jean-Marc Brocard’s emblematic ‘Vielles Vignes’ Chablis is produced from old vines planted nearly 70 years ago. With roots reaching down over 25 meters into the Kimmeridgian age limestone soil, these vines produce concentrated wines that express the full complexity and finesse of the Chardonnay grape. Here, the nose displays notes of acacia, honeysuckle and Kaffir lime. The palate shows a floral side, too, before leading into the typical minerality of a Chablis

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.
