375ml Brocard Chablis Sainte Claire (375ml)
After marrying his childhood sweetheart, Claudine, Jean-Marc Brocard moved from his native village in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or region, to her hometown in Chablis. As a wedding present, Claudine’s father presented the couple with 1.5 acres of vines near the Church of Saint Claire and in 1972 the Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard was born.
In 1998 Jean-Marc decided to cultivate most of their vineyards using biodynamic principles, which is a step further towards sustainability than even organic viticulture. Biodynamic preparations based on extracts from beneficial plants are sprayed over the vineyard to boost the vine’s natural defences, thus protecting it from diseases in a completely natural way. Work in the vineyards and in the cellars is also carried out in harmony with the rhythms of nature and the lunar, solar cycles. Brocard’s Chablis expresses the pure quality of the chalky and mineral soil.
On the nose, floral and citrus aromas bursting out of the glass. On the palate, those notes carry through with added finesse, lively acidity, and firm minerality on the finish. Use as an aperitif, pair with a variety of cold, summer salads, or even serve alongside your favourite seafood dishes.
Made from 100% Chardonnay, the grapes come from biodynamically farmed vineyard. Pneumatic pressing. Temperature controlled. 100% stainless steel tanks for 9 months. Malolactic fermentation completed.
