Winemaker's Notes:

This is the most complex and vibrant wine from the Prehy vineyard. This Chablis is a brilliant color with green highlights. The nose is precise, pure, chiselled, with slightly iodized notes of citrus fruit. The mouth has a classic structure, crunchy and delicious, with notes of citrus fruit and minerality. The finish is very appetizing, with stony, salty minerality.

About Brocard:

Some twenty years ago, Jean-Marc Brocard chose to establish his estate in Préhy, a small village near the town of Chablis.... At that time, one of his in-laws, Louis Petit, taught him about the vine and at the same time instilled a deep sense of tradition and respect for nature. Boosted by this knowledge and determined to dedicate himself to a vineyard, Jean-Marc Brocard planted a hectare of vines within the appellation of Chablis.

As a perfectionist, Jean-Marc Brocard naturally erected his purpose-built cellars in the centre of his vineyard to give the grapes his constant attention. Such dedication together with the best quality Chablis soil produce an exceptional wine with a typical mineral style. It is elegant and full of character. Jean-Marc Brocard’s boundless dedication to wine has borne fruit: the Brocard estate now comprises 80 hectares of vines, 65 of which are adjacent to the cellars.
