Food Pairings for Jean-Marc Brocard Petit Chablis Domaine Sainte Claire
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. Situated in the village of Chichée, this vineyard has a southern exposure. The soil is Portlandian limestone, with a layer of Jurassic. The vines are thirty years old. Following a pneumatic pressing, the juice underwent fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperatures. Malolactic fermentation was completed. This Petit Chablis is a mix of fruity and floral aromas on the nose, then a lively palate with notes of flowers leading on to a slightly minerally finish.
