2008 Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 750ml

Quick Overview

This very known soil, the vastest of Grands Crus, has a big personality. The south exposure gives generous, very dry, powerful, rich, long wines on the palate, which make miracles after some years of ageing. Les Clos always develop in an exceptional way in time, by remaining mineral and powerful.

2008 Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 750ml

Yellow green color. The nose is pure, chiselled, refined, in the mineral notes (shell of oyster, slightly iodized). The mouth reveals a beautiful salinity, in the spicy and peppered notes, with a fine woody and toasted touch. A wine very distinguished, which has many elegance.

ALLEN MEADOWS RATING: 94

ALLEN MEADOWS REVIEW: A spicy and mineral-suffused nose of green fruit and rose petal has now eaten all but the last vestiges of its oak treatment. The big, rich, powerful and mineral-driven flavors possess simply phenomenal length and overall, this is a knock-out effort with superb cellaring potential.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 92-93

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Tasted asse mbled from demi-muids (none of which were new), the Brocard 2008 Chablis Les Clos displays bright lemon and lime, salt and chalk, with striking luscious, primary juiciness allied to transparency to mineral nuance that transcends the other wines in this year’s collection. Yet it’s not so much the nuances or details that impress for now though, as the expansive, well-lit stage and the finishing reach of this richly-textured yet vivacious grand cru. I would anticipate its being worth following for at least ten or a dozen years

STEVE TANZAR RATING: 94

STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Pale yellow. Captivating bright, pure, complex nose is dominated by iodine and powdered stone. Less powerful than the Valmur but sharply delineated, with terrific cut and depth to its saline, fine-grained lemon, mineral and iodiney oyster shell fla vors. Finishes wonderfully long and tactile, with terrific subtle perfume. Manages to be very rich without coming across as thick, in the way of the best examples of this great grand cru. This has delivered on its early promise but will require patience.
