Soil, or terroir, is important for Brocard. To best express the Chablis character Jean-Marc Brocard has chosen not to use any oak for his wines. He thinks that this best enhances the minerality and typical Chablis style. The property covers a substantial 96 hectares and produces a wide range of wines, including premier cru and grand cru wines as well as non-AC-Chablis wines. These are made in similar style and specifically to express the terroir and therefore carry the name of the soil type: Kimméridgien, Portlandien och Jurassique. Jean-Marc has recently deservedly been very successful in marketing his wines internationally.
