A textbook flinty aroma gives way to green apple, lemon and mineral flavors in this white, which shows fine depth and richness, offset by vibrant acidity. Excellent length. Drink now through 2020.
This is the most complex and vibrant wine from the Prehy vineyard. This Chablis is a brilliant color with green highlights. The nose is precise, pure, chiseled, with slightly iodized notes of citrus fruit. The mouth has a classic structure, crunchy and delicious, with notes of citrus fruit and minerality. The finish is very appetizing, with stony, salty minerality.
The Chablis Sainte Claire is comprised of 100% Chardonnay 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, which give this Chablis its fresh & vibrant minerality. Planted 5,700 vines per hectare, all farmed biodynamically. The wine was fermented using native yeasts in stainless steel tanks and then aged in tank for 9 months. Malolactic fermentation completed.
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.
