    Default 2007 J-M Brocard Chablis VV

    I met a friend for lunch and we split a bottle of the 2007 J-M Brocard
    Vielles Vignes. The new label didn't look French but I guess that's
    why I was never very good at marketing! The wine was pale gold in
    color and shimmered in the glass. Fairly effusive nose of limestone
    mineral, sea salt and fresh lime. Fairly plush on the palate with a
    reacy acidity. Plenty of citrus and rocky minerality built on a
    typically Chablis frame of fruit with finesse. I liked the effort and
    for $38 it was a good QPR. "B+"

    $38 in a restaurant? Very good price.
    I need to look for this, your writeup was similar to Gilman's (don't
    think he'd mind a sngle quote):
    "the sixty-eight year-old vines use for this bottling are in the
    transition phase to biodynamique, and it will be very interesting to
    see this wine when the change is complete in its viticulture. The 2007
    is a lovely wine in the making, and was much more on form at the time
    of my visit than the above. The bouquet is deep and classy, as it
    offers up a superb mélange of grapefruit, lemon, plenty of wet stone
    minerality, lemongrass, lime oil and a touch of anise. On the palate
    the wine is fullish, deep and shows great focus and cut, with fine
    depth at the core and excellent length and grip on the racy and very
    minerally finish. A very, very classy old vine bottling. 91"

    pretty good for Chablis AC!

    I recently had a bottle of the same and was quite surprised to see the
    label change. I really liked this and the store purchase was $22.50 so
    $38 is indeed a good buy. I found this to be a good QPR. The acidity
    made for good food friendliness.

    I'm not nearly as fluent in wine writing as John Gilman and I'm not
    even sure where to find his reviews but it is a pretty good review for
    a pretty good glass of wine! I did taste it initially at the winery
    last spring. The restaurant we were at usually only charges me retail
    prices as their usual charge is only $10 over retail and I bring them
    a lot of business and I bring them little wine gifts from time to time.

    Actually sometimes I wish John would trim it a bit. It's the only
    newsletter I still subscribe to (http://viewfromthecellar.com/) , very
    opinionated (he's very traditionalist/anti-high alcohol/anti-oak). But
    great indepth articles about estates, appellations, etc. Quite
    expensive ($120/yr) , but I enjoy. If you email him he'll send you a
    sample article I think.
    Disclaimer, he's in my SOBER group.
