Vinified predominantly from fruit grown to very low yielding Mendoza clones, planted ton the neighbouring Craighall property over twenty years ago. Hand picked grapes are whole bunch pressed through a Willmes membrane, indigenous yeasts initiate ferment of the freshly pressed, unsettled juices, at temperatures of 15┬░C to 20┬░C, in a combination of seasoned and new Burgundian oak barriques. These wild yeasts slow the onset and duration of ferments, achieving a textural, multi faceted wine.

Long time winemaker Clotilde Davenne enjoys the enviable task of crafting the precious parcels of Domaine St Claire Chardonnay to express their distinguished origins. This is the classic attitude of terroir, a place that expresses itself in the wine, through the wine. Starting out in the early 1970s with just one hectare of Chablis vines, Jean Marc has built up to a formidable 120 hectares which supplies most of his needs. The annual purchase of new oak is only a few barrels a year and this tells a lot. Grapes are grown to slopes that are shared with the tiny more exclusive Premier and Grand Cru sites, either side of the Serein River valley in which the town of Chablis itself is situated.
 
Pale greenish hue. Fine, delicate nose with notes of white fruit, cherry plums and crystallized citrus. The mouth reveals spicy and slightly acid notes, candy drops and lime. A thirst quenching palate, the dry oceanic winds, sultry seasoned oak characters, classic cheesey Chablis notes and chalkiness continue through to the lively cleansing finish. Brocard reflects the unique soil profiles of the region and with very little intervention. The essential expressions of cereal, mineral and citrus persist, the palate is tight but not as severe as fuller bodied Chablis. A crisp dry white which embraces habitual food matches, ideal with sauced white meat dishes and firmly fleshed fish.
