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 Brocard 2011 Chablis Les Clos – raised largely in foudre – leads with an assertive and strikingly-scented spray of lemon oil, fusil oils, fennel pollen and chalk dust. Behind that, salted, herbed chicken stock mingles with a juicy abundance of fresh lemon on a polished and uplifting palate, leading to a mouthwatering finish to which hints of iodine and apple pip help add invigoration and intrigue. This should remain impressive through at least 2022."See detailed press review
