Jean-Marc Brocard's origins lie in the Côte d'Or. For he is a farmer's son from the village of Chaudenay-le-Château, not even the son of the vigneron. It was an accident of marriage that brought him to wine, he married Claudine (his childhood sweetheart), a vigneron's daughter from the village of St-Bris-le-Vineux in the valley of Yonne. Starting with a hectare of vines from his father-in-law, Emile Petit, he has created an estate of some 180 hectares vineyards in Chablis and Burgundy....

This crisp, steely wine comes from the cooler left bank of the river in Chablis. It is a tight wine, strong on minerality and tangy acidity, with the steely texture that gives the ability to age.See detailed press review

Neal Martin, August 2017
The 2016 Chablis 1Er Cru Montmains is matured in a mix of 50-100 hectoliter foudres (one-third) and stainless steel vats (two-thirds). It has an attractive if light apple peel and fresh pear-scented bouquet that needs some encouragement from the glass. The palate is balanced and fresh with well-judged acidity. There is a slight tang of quince in the background and it sports a fine, quite saline finish. It should be ready to drink straight from bottling, but should give six to eight year's drinking pleasure and possibly more.See detailed press review
