International Wine Review
Jean-Marc Brocard, 2012 Brocard Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru

93
"The Les Clos is a lovely wine and highly approachable at this stage of development. It displays ripe fruit with hints of bees wax and is full on the palate with good density and balance and a refined finish. A tad closed now but clearly a gorgeous wine."

"This is also quite restrained with a layered nose of mineral reduction, citrus, floral and ocean breeze. There is a lovely coolness to the mineral-driven, pure and notably rich middle weight flavors that possess a real sense of power along with a relatively refined mouth feel, all wrapped in an energetic and explosive finish. A Les Clos of finesse."

"Light, pure aromas and flavors of lemon, lime blossom, mint and crushed stone. Vibrant but youthfully tight, showing excellent mid-palate energy and a complicating suggestion of nutty oak (from the 10% fut?). Finishes with a saline element and very good glistening clarity."

2012 Brocard Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru
Jean-Marc Brocard

Les Clos is the largest and most famous of the Grands Crus, because it is the historical cradle of Chablis vineyards. The vineyard, with its due south orientation and dense, white clay soils, rests on a Kimmeridgian limestone bed 80 cm below the surface. Les Clos' vines are approximately 30 years old and all winemaking is done using Biodynamic principles.

Gently pressed grapes undergo native yeast fermentation followed by full malolcatic fermentation and 18 months maturation on the lees in foudre.
