This is the “natural” Chablis of the range, produced from biodynamic grapes and aged without filtering, the addition of sulphites and yeasts or fining. One of the Domaine’s original biodynamic plots, it has an exceptional terroir and south-east orientation. 7th can only be produced if the grapes are in perfect health at the time of harvest. It is a dessert in itself, full of elegance, offering a very pure expression of the fruit with a nose of baked apples and bergamot accompanied by vanilla and mineral notes; on the palate, baked apples, lemon zest, mint and cinnamon.
Julien Brocard has created a collection of Chablis grands vins titled ‘Les 7 Lieux’ (The Seven Places): seven wines, each soley from one of seven vineyards. Each Chablis vineyard differing in biodynamic practices, soil, location and sun exposure. Each of their vineyards are chosen for their quality, strength, sun exposure and terroir, are worked year after year following biodynamic principles. 7ème, Côte de Léchet, Les Vaudevey, Boissonneuse and Les Plantes (Petit Chablis) all impart a unique identity to the wines grown on them. 7ÈME is the wholly natural Chablis of the collection, cultivated using biodynamics and matured without filtering or the addition of sulphites, yeast or finings.
The wines are produced following an ethical, sustainable quality process for viticulture and winegrowing. Biodynamics has been a part of the Brocard’s history since 1997. The grapes come from plots that have not been treated with pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers for at least three years. This vineyard is cultivated with biodynamic preparations containing cow manure, silica and herbs, sprayed on as decoctions or compost teas to protect and fortify the soil and vines. Great care is taken to produce every bottle; each is wax dipped by hand.
