Jean Marc Brocard Margote, Chardonnay
Burgundy, France 2018 (750 ml)
Jean-Marc Brocard became a winemaker as a happy accident. He married his childhood sweetheart, the daughter of a vigneron. Starting with a hectare from his father-in-law, he now manages over 180 hectares in Chablis. When the tough vintage of 2017 hit, he made a Vin de France by blending Chablis with wine from the Loire and South of France. The result is extraordinary. Fresh aromas hint at Chablis, with citrus and minerality.
