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 2018 Côté de Lechet 1er Cru is bright, precise and full of energy. Lemon confit, exotic white flowers and mineral notes give the 2018 lovely energy to balance the natural radiance of the fruit. Medium in body and persistent, with terrific tension, the 2018 has a lot to offer. I tasted it from 50-hectoliter cask just prior to bottling. The 2018 finishes with lovely aromatics, lift, freshness, and mineral-infused vibracy that all bode well for the future."

"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."
