Chablis, A Personal Favourite

An air of contention has surrounded Chablis over the years mainly due to the willingness of the New World winemakers use it as a generic name for the some of the white wine they were producing. This despite the fact that it would be impossible to replicate the austere character of Chablis in their climates.

In its home country it has also found itself living in the shadow of its illustrious neighbours of the Côte D’or. These factors have now hopefully been relegated to the history books as Chablis is appreciated for being one the world’s great wines. It has an individual character that sets it apart from the other Chardonnays of Burgundy, where it sits at the most Northerly tip. Jean Marc Brocard has always set out to make Chablis in a way that was true to the traditions of the region whilst engaging modern wine making techniques. He began by planting just one hectare of vines producing his first Chablis in 1974. The success of his wine is illustrated by the 600,000 bottles he now produces annually, with the growth of his vinyards to 96 hectares.
