Food Pairings for Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Premiere Cru Montmains
The domaine of Jean-Marc Brocard began as just one hectare, a gift from his father-in-law when he married into a winegrowing family. He has since expanded to 120 hectares, and is widely recognised as one of Chablis’ leading producers. The approach is one of minimal intervention in both vineyard and winery: cultivation is practically organic, with ploughing in place of herbicides, predators instead of pesticides, manure rather than fertiliser, and as little spraying as the grapes’ health requires. No oak is used in the winery, so the results are pure, unadorned expressions of the great chalk slopes of Chablis. Grapes for this wine are grown on south-facing vineyards situated in a very windy valley between Chablis and Courgis. The twenty-five to thirty-year-old vines have a southern exposure and grow on Kimmeridgian soil: alternating layers of limestone and clay/marl. Following a pneumatic pressing, the juice underwent fermentation in stainless steel vats with temperature control. Malolactic fermentation was completed. This wine produces spicy notes with flint and citrus fruit aromas on the nose, followed by a subtle palate showing beautiful minerality and notes of lemon.
