Jean-Marc Brocard, 2015 Brocard Chablis Vaulorent 1er Cru

91
"Bright, light yellow. Tangy, expressive scents of fresh apricot, soft citrus fruits, spices and smoky minerality. At once fat and firm, with lovely calcaire energy giving shape and grip to the middle palate. Hints of ginger and pistachio contribute complexity. Finishes spicy, salty and slightly tannic, ripe and rich but adamantly dry. This premier cru needs some time but has the structure and depth to reward patience. I did not taste this wine last year but today it clearly outshines the Montée de Tonnerre."

2015 Brocard Chablis Vaulorent 1er Cru
Jean-Marc Brocard

Vaulorent is a part of Fourchaume, one of the best known Premiers Crus of the Chablis. But Vaulorent could be considered as the first Grand Cru because it offers wines of a very high quality.

It is the only Premier Cru growing on Grand Cru hill, beside the Grand Cru Les Preuses.

The chardonnay is grown on Kimmeridgian soils, and fermented with Natural yeast. The alcoholic fermentation and maturing occur on the lees in Foudre for 14-15 months. The wines undergo full Malolactic fermentation.
