Minerality, elegance and power make a typical wine of its appellation. It is located in a windy valley which gives it its acidity.
Crystal clear and brilliant golden green color, with silvery grey highlights. On the nose, spicy notes, with flint and citrus fruit aromas. On the palate, a supple attack with very thirst-quenching lemony notes. A beautiful minerality which is expressed by iodized and "saline" flavors. Wine in sharpness with a warm and delicious finish.
"Dill, caraway, and a maritime mingling of salinity and alkalinity scent the Brocard 2008 Chablis Montmains (incorporating fruit from Forets and Butteaux), and the combination of textural polish, clarity and refreshment on the palate here is admirable, leading to a finish of vibrant interaction between succulently ripe citrus, yellow cherry, and apricot; herbs; and vivid if to some extent elusive mineral notes. This should entertain, intrigue, and ingratiate itself at table over the next 4-6 years."
The Wine Advocate
"The typical floral aromas are present along with pure and elegant hints of wet stone and sea breeze and this sense of refinement also characterizes the enveloping, seductive and rather delicate flavors that possess good cut and detail on the delicious and wonderfully persistent finish. This bone dry effort is a wine of understatement and finesse."
"Among the tightest and freshest of Brocard's 2008s tasted for this issue, this wine has a dusty lime minerality that wraps austerity into its ripe pineapple flavors. The finish is clean, cool and spicy. Decant it now for a lobster tail or cellar for five or six years."
