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....

The wine is rich and full in the mouth with ripe fruit from the deep clay soil of this premier cru. It is beautifully concentrated and ripe. The fruit is so crisp and juicy that this yellow and white-fruit flavored wine could be drunk now.See detailed press review

Ripe and creamy, this white displays lemon cake and white peach flavors, with a stony undertow. Harmonious and long on the finish. Lively acidity keeps this focused and clean.See detailed press review

Butteaux lies on the west side of the Premier Cru Montmains, comfortably preserved within in a warm circle of terroir. The 2015 seems exaggerated with respect to texture from its lees like all Brocard, but here with more weight, girth, density and structure. Preserved lemon slowly filters to drop by drop and there is more perceived sweetness which just adds to the fullness and textures. The vintage speaks and here is another example of why Brocard is so well known for clean wines of extreme clarity.See detailed press review
