The 2019 Jean-Marc Brocard Saint Claire Chablis Vieilles Vignes is alluring and persistent. This wine delivers ripe fruit, savory spices, and light minerality in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with freshly pounded and breaded pan-seared abalone. (Tasted: December 24, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
Aromatically the wine is full of yellow fruits, such as lemon and crunchy apples, mango, and a hint of salty air. On the palate, the wine is a touch oily, with notes of marzipan, crushed rocks and delicate lemon curd.
