Chablis 1er Cru Cote de Lechet

2017

Côte de Léchet embodies the purest characteristics of Chablis: 38 degree slope right in the sun, very rocky soil, and small yields of deeply mineral wines.

"The 2017 Chablis Côte de Léchet 1er Cru has a crisp, mineral-driven, wet limestone scented bouquet that is pure classic Chablis. The palate is very precise on the entry with well judged acidity, taut and linear with a really detailed and quite intellectual finish. This is a top class Côte de Léchet, one of the best in 2017 you will find."

"Brocard's 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Léchet unfurls in the glass with an attractive nose of ripe Meyer lemon, fresh pastry and blanched almonds. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with good concentration, racy acids and a long, saline finish. Impressively deep, lively and persistent, this is a fine effort from Brocard."

"Brocard’s biodynamic farming and vinification in large oak vats bring out the intensity of this steep vineyard, its rock face oriented directly toward the sun. The wine’s power comes across in precise flavors, from tart apple to juicy lemon and the red zone of a peach close to the pit. You can almost feel the wine struggling to get out from under the pressure of its leesy-hard structure, as if you can taste the future at the very end, when the entire wine turns toward freshness."
