Region: Chablis, FRA
Celine and Frederic Brocard founded their domaine in 2013 after inheriting some incredible vineyards in Chablis from Celine’s grandmother. Almost all fruit is estate-grown except a few premier cru parcels and haven’t felt a drop of pesticide or herbicide since 2015.
Their AC Chablis comes from 40 year old vines around Prehy and Clichee. It spends six months on fine lees which lends generosity and length. There’s great balance and finesse here. Freshly cut royal gala apple, freshly squeezed oranges and ripe stone fruit. Great drive and, of course, trademark minerality.
