The Domaine of Jean-Marc Brocard began as just one hectare, a gift from his father-in-law when he married into a winegrowing family. He has since expanded to 120 hectares, and is widely recognised as one of Chablis’ leading producers. The approach is one of minimal intervention in both vineyard and winery: cultivation is practically organic, with ploughing in place of herbicides, predators instead of pesticides, manure rather than fertiliser, and as little spraying as the grapes’ health requires. No oak is used in the winery, so the results are pure, unadorned expressions of the great chalk slopes of Chablis.
The viticulture and the harvesting of the grapes which produce this Petit Chablis are carefully controlled by Julien Brocard. Organic cultural techniques are taking over from chemical treatments and the vines are gradually building up their resistance to disease in a totally natural way. Oak ageing is deemed unnecessary as this wine expresses its fruity quality thanks to the limestone and clay soil. Lighter than other Chablis, this Petit Chablis makes an ideal aperitif, or matches well with light fish dishes and salads.more ↓ less ↑
