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.
Producer: Some twenty years ago, Jean-Marc Brocard chose to establish his estate in Préhy, a small village near the town of Chablis.... At that time, one of his in-laws, Louis Petit, taught him about the vine and at the same time instilled a deep sense of tradition and respect for nature. Boosted by this knowledge and determined to dedicate himself to a vineyard, Jean-Marc Brocard planted a hectare of vines within the appellation of Chablis. As a perfectionist, Jean-Marc Brocard naturally erected his purpose-built cellars in the centre of his vineyard to give the grapes his constant attention. Such dedication together with the best quality Chablis soil produce an exceptional wine with a typical mineral style. It is elegant and full of character. Jean-Marc Brocard’s boundless dedication to wine has borne fruit: the Brocard estate now comprises 80 hectares of vines, 65 of which are adjacent to the cellars.
Vineyard and Winemaking: The 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. 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.
