Chablis is home to the most elegant and mineral high-quality Chardonnay wines in the world. Here, specifically in the village of Préhy, Jean-Marc Brocard, who actually studied engineering, planted his first vines in 1973. Of course, he had a family background, as he came from a winegrowing family in the Côte d'Or. Since the times in viticulture in the 1960s and 70s were not rosy, the Jean-Marc family recommended changing careers. Jean-Marc nevertheless returned to his roots and today the family is one of the most important landowners in the Chablis. Son Julien has also been with us for a long time and has brought out his own line with the Julien Brocard labels with 7 different layers, all of which are produced and certified according to Demeter specifications. His wines also sometimes deviate from the classic Jean Mac line, which only uses steel tanks, Julien also uses batone eggs for fermentation and storage, and wooden barrels are also used for some wines.

Due to the extensive vineyard property and the various methods of vinification, you will find a real treasure trove of quality levels and wine styles at Brocard. Seven 1er Crus, including the best, and all 7 Chablis Grand Crus existing, including the most famous Le Clos, belong to Jean-Marc's portfolio alone, plus his son's labels.
