Producer's description

Jean-Marc Brocard comes from a peasant family, his father was a farmer in the village of Chaudeney-le-Château. The decision of Jean-Marc to engage in winemaking contributed to the event - in 1971 he married Claudine Petit, the daughter of a winemaker, and it was this event that changed his whole life. Starting with a hectare of the vineyards of his father-in-law, Emile Petit, Brocard created a whole estate of 180 hectares of vineyards in Chablis and Burgundy. Jean-Marc does not use oak barrels, believing that the essence of wine is an expression of the characteristics of the site, which includes not only the soil, but also the microclimate, and any contact with the tree can completely change and destroy the taste of the wine, so the purity of the taste of his wines is undeniable .

Jean-Marc Brocard acknowledges the significant contribution of Saint-Cyr-le-Colonne winegrower, Louis Petit, despite the similarity of surnames unrelated to his father-in-law. The old vines in Domaine St. Clair came to him from Louis Petit, and it was Louis who instilled in Jean Marc a sense of tradition and respect for nature, showing that by practicing modern methods, ancient traditions can be maintained. Brocard and his assistant oenologist Patrick Puze pay great attention to the specific characteristics of each vineyard. Jean-Marc sees the winemaker as a link in the chain between the grapes and the finished wine. He pays great attention to the soil. In one of the rooms of the estate there is a model of a rock, which demonstrates layers of limestone and clay with fossilized shells through which the roots of grapes pass. Only at first glance it may seem that the soil is completely impenetrable, but the roots of grapes can reach a meter in a year, receiving minerals that give the wine unique characteristics. When processing vineyards, preference is given to natural methods.

"The truth of wine lies in the soils where it originates. Technique is a very important element in the production of wine, but it is only a help, wine is essentially a product of the soil. The lands of Chablis are extraordinary and cannot be found anywhere else in the world, therefore I believe in the future of Chablis even in the next millennium" - Jean-Marc Brocard.
