The delicacy and delicious salinity of a Chablis Premier Cru by Brocard

The estate

Meeting his future wife and in-laws, wine-growers in Saint-Bris-le-Vineux, was what introduced Jean-Marc Brocard, then an engineer, to vineyard- and wine-related work. It was in 1973 that Jean-Marc Brocard planted his first vines in Préhy, at the heart of the Chablisian vineyard. His son, Julien, joined the estate in 1995 and quickly became fascinated by biodynamic methods, which he gradually applied to the estate’s plots.

Rightly recognised as an expert of his terroir in Chablis, Jean-Marc Brocard’s respect for his land has remained the bedrock of his work and ethical code. This is why he has always sought to apply ecological principles, limiting manmade operations and being guided by the ambition to reveal authentic Chablisian climates. This results in direct, pure and mineral wines.

A true product of its time, the Jean-Marc Brocard estate is, today, one of Burgundy’s most important and influential producers of organically farmed wines.

The vineyard

With a surface area of over 140 hectares, the vineyard at the Jean-Marc Brocard estate is located at the heart of the Chablis appellation. With vines aged by 40 years on average, the vineyard brings together the Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru and Chablis Grand Cru appellations.
