Jean-Marc Brocard Domaine St Claire Petit Chablis Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

When the budget does not extend to proper Chablis, you can opt for petit Chablis and one of the best we have found is the Jean Marc Brocard. It’s got a fruitier and more accessible palate than some of the more minerally whites of the estate but it’s a classic match for a prawn cocktail. Perfect when chilled this wine offers up plenty of citrus flavour with lots of texture and a long persistence on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Petit Chablis is the signature wine of the general Chablis region. It is still quite delimited and particular, having to come from the slopes (which they share with the tiny, more exclusive Premier and Grand Cru sites) either side of the Serein River valley in which the town of Chablis itself sits.

Nose: The aromas are of cereal, mineral and citrus.

Palate: 2012 is a very good vintage of perfect grapes, certainly with generosity this year, but with a higher nervy acidity than in recent vintages. The palate is tight but not severe and goes on to that lively cleansing Chablis finish.

Food: Chablis is a crisp dry white which embraces specific food matches, and is ideal where white meats and fish are involved, whether in a simple even raw form or with another, say dairy or light earthy influence.

Cellaring: This wine is beautiful now, but will easily cellar and improve for some years yet.
