Jules Brochet Premise
A blend made from 50% Chardonnay from Taissy, 45% Pinot Noir from Mailly and 5% Meunier from Barzy sur Marne. 20% reserve from his first blend. Boom! What a nose! Toasty, cooked pear, lemon curd and nuts. The mousse is beautiful – so creamy up front with such energy on the mid and this building mid to late with some yummy salinity. Crisp, textured, energetic and luscious – this is a proper bombshell of a wine.
Pierric comes from a family of winegrowers. He was able to start the brand, named after his great grandfather (who is also Gaspard’s great Grandfather!), when he took over his family vineyards and purchased a few others. He works with 4.5ha of plots in Taissy, Mailly Champagne, Ay, Rilly la Montagne and Barzy sur Marne, although only 1.5ha are used for his wines. He started organic conversion in 2020.
