The Portlandian limestone subsoil and South/South-East orientation give it a spicy nose with notes of lemon zest, fresh grass and white pepper. The palate offers fresh almonds, sea salt, lemon zest. A very lively, well-balanced, smooth wine, with a delicate, layered minerality.
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.
