Jean-Marc Brocard's origins lie in the Côte d'Or. For he is a farmer's son from the village of Chaudenay-le-Château, not even the son of the vigneron. It was an accident of marriage that brought him to wine, he married Claudine (his childhood sweetheart), a vigneron's daughter from the village of St-Bris-le-Vineux in the valley of Yonne. Starting with a hectare of vines from his father-in-law, Emile Petit, he has created an estate of some 180 hectares vineyards in Chablis and Burgundy....
Notes of lemon, vanilla and an intriguing saltiness. This wine's complex yet elegant profile and smooth texture are a classic reflection of its prestigious terroir. Serve between 12°C and 14°C.
Les Clos, the cradle of Chablis vineyards, is the largest of the Grands Crus. With open Southern exposure, its terroir produces generous, full-bodied wines with a very long, supple finish.

This is also quite restrained with a layered nose of mineral reduction, citrus, floral and ocean breeze. There is a lovely coolness to the mineral-driven, pure and notably rich middle weight flavors that possess a real sense of power along with a relatively refined mouth feel, all wrapped in an energetic and explosive finish. A Les Clos of finesse.See detailed press review

Pale bright yellow. Light, pure aromas and flavors of lemon, lime blossom, mint and crushed stone. Vibrant but youthfully tight, showing excellent mid-palate energy and a complicating suggestion of nutty oak (from the 10% fut?). Finishes with a saline element and very good glistening clarity.See detailed press review
