Jean Marc Brocard – 4/12/2012

Petit Chablis 2011
Grassy crisp green light citrus lemon lime notes, quite simple and fresh. Ripe fresh dense and broad, very pleasant and good for the style.

Chablis Vielles Vignes 2011
Smokier flinty minerality, crisp and focused but elegant. Dense and both full yet green. Pleasant enough but lacking finesse and minerality on the palate.

Julien Brocard 2010 La Boissonneuse
Rich ripe concentrated fruit, stone-fruit as opposed to citrus. Nice focus and balanced through the palate, nothing sticking out, has kind of an ungainly fruit-sweetness to it.

Cotes des Lechets 2009 Premier Cru
Focused clean and pure, quite delicate and precise but with some delicate richness. Broad and a little clumsy, good acids and balanced alcohol, just a tad fat.

Vaulorent 2010 Premier Cru
Rich broad better focus, clean and tight but approachable. Plenty going on in this one, much better expression and style. Good fruit ripeness.

Vaudesir 2010 Grand Cru
Bright crisp and lovely ripe fruit, very inviting. Very tight and mineralic with some late open richness and ripeness. Quite precise clean and lacking in depth and character. Well made example of Chablis but far from distinguished.

Les Preuses 2009 Grand Cru
Good, not great. I’ll drink it if it’s in the glass.
