2021 Julien Brocard Petit Chablis 'Les Plantes'
SKU: B212Regular price $37.95
Julien Brocard was the first to practice biodynamic farming in Chablis and it was not without its challenges. Growers from neighboring plots feared that biodynamic farming brought disease to their vineyards. Ignoring the naysayers and happy with the results, Julien pressed on and continued to convert more vineyards to biodynamic agriculture. In 2012, feeling that the sites were showing their fullest potential, he launched his own label, Julien Brocard - les 7 Lieux. “7 Lieux” translates to seven sites and he started with seven wines that year.
From a 1.5 hectare parcel located just behind the winery with Kimmeridgian limestone. Most Petit Chablis are from hill top vineyards and are grown in Portlandian limestone. Only 5-10% are grown in Kimmeridgian soil. Fermented and aged in large foudres.
