About the Wine

History

Born in 1946 in Chaudenay-le-Château in Côte d’Or from a family of farmers, Jean-Marc Brocard follows the advice of his father and swiftly from agriculture whose future is not enough carrier in the late 60’s. He chose a HND in engineering and became an engineer at Auxerre.

The meeting with his future wife, and his in-laws family, winegrowers in Saint-Bris-le-Vineux will initiate in the work of the vine and wine.

In 1973, at the birth of his son Julien, Jean-Marc plant his first vines in Préhy, where it will build a few years later, his winery that will become the domaine Jean-Marc Brocard situated in the center of Chablis vineyards.

Julien joined the familial domaine to work alongside his father in 1995, after studying engineering.

Today, the domaine is among the most important actors of Burgundy to cultivate vineyards in organic farming.

As CEO of the company, Julien continues the development of the area while pulsing a corporate culture.
