Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard

Jean-Marc Brocard established himself in the village of Préhy, just to the south-west of Chablis, in 1973, shortly after marrying a vigneron’s daughter from St-Bris. Today the domaine, a mix of their own property and long-term farming contracts, covers 200 hectares, while Jean-Marc has handed over day-to-day responsibilities to his son Julien and son-in-law Frédéric Gueguen. Julien has been instrumental in converting the vineyards to biodynamic principles. Indeed a visit to the company’s headquarters in the village of Préhy is fascinating for the contrasting mix of a dynamic business sense, almost a feel of commercial hustle, and the passion for what is happening above and below the soil.

Tasting Notes

An amazing bouquet offers enticing scents of sea breeze, saline, herbs, lemon curds and beeswax. The palate is rich, creamy in texture, notes of honeysuckle, pear and apple, and supported by well integrated acidity.

Food Matches

Perfect with smoked salmon, prawns and avocado or crispy roast chicken.
