Chablis Sainte Claire
Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Sainte Claire - Burgundy, France
The Sainte Claire Chablis expresses with lots of finesse the character of the Chablis terroir and its famous Kimmeridgian soil. Made from 100% chardonnay grapes, this is a beautiful white wine, fresh and elegant. On the nose, notes of lemon and yellow fruits. The palate is enticing, balanced, and tangy. A perfect food companion: the classic pairings are shellfish and fish such as salmon, tuna, sole. You can also experiment with a delicate pear cake with vanilla cream.
About Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard
After marrying his childhood sweetheart, Claudine, Jean-Marc Brocard moved from his native village in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or region, to her hometown in Chablis. As a wedding present, Claudine’s father presented the couple with 1.5 acres of vines near the Church of Saint Claire and in 1972 the Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard was born. In 1998 Jean-Marc decided to cultivate most of their vineyards biodynamically, which is a step further towards sustainability than even organic viticulture. Biodynamic preparations based on extracts from beneficial plants are sprayed over the vineyard to boost the vine’s natural defences, thus protecting it from diseases in a completely natural way. Work in the vineyards and in the cellars is also carried out in harmony with the rhythms of nature and the lunar and solar cycles. Brocard’s Chablis expresses the pure quality of the chalky and mineral soil.
