VINEYARD The Brocard Vieilles Vignes Sainte Claire is from a Massal selection of very old vines planted after WWII that gives tiny yields of around 30 hl per hectare. The vineyard sits on southwest facing exposures in class Chablis.
SOIL Kimmeridgian limestone soils.
VINIFICATION AND AGING The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, no battonage and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation. It ages on its lees in stainless tanks for added complexity. Like all of Brocard's wines, it is farmed Biodynamically. Jean-Marc Brocard calls this wine "the most consistent ager in our cellar over the last 20 years
