Jean-Marc Brocard 2019 'Sainte Claire' Chablis, Burgundy, France [375ml half bottle]

Jean-Marc Brocard, the son of a farmer from the village of Chaudenay-le-Château in the Côte d’Or, discovered his passion for wine after marrying his childhood sweetheart Claudine, the daughter of vigneron Emile Petit from the Yonne Valley. In addition to his father-in-law, Jean-Marc credits much of his wine expertise to his mentor and distant relative, “P’tit” Louis, another vigneron from Chablis that provided him with a sense of vision and respect for nature combining traditional practices with modern winemaking techniques.

In 1973, Jean-Marc settled in Préhy, where he built his winery and 1 hectare vineyard. He has since created a 120 hectare estate and produces over 30 unique single vineyard Chablis. In 1996, Jean-Marc’s son, Julien Brocard, joined the family business with a vision to turn the entire estate into a biodynamic and organic culture. Brocard owns all their vineyards except the Grand Crus (other than Les Preuses). Les Preuses Grand Cru is owned by Brocard.

Winemaker: Jean-Marc and Julien Brocard

Farming: Certified Organic

Variety: 100% Chardonnay

TerroirThe Chardonnay comes from 30-year-old vines with south-facing exposures in the Village of Préhy. Soils are Kimmeridgian with alternate layers of limestone and marls containing fossilized marine bodies, and the vines are farmed biodynamically.

Vinification:  After harvest, the wine is pressed and fermented using native years in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in tank for 9 months and malolactic fermentation is completed at this time.

Tasting Notes: Aromatically this wine is tart, with notes of lemon oils and mango skin, as well as a bit of minty herbaceousness. On the palate, there are flavors of honey, tropical fruits just barely ripened, as well as a finish of bracing acidity.
