The Brocard family's vineyard is located in Préhy, a small village near Chablis where Jean-Marc Brocard chose to build his estate 40 years ago. It was at that time that Louis Petit, a member of his in-laws "taught" him the vine and at the same time passed on to him values as important as respect for nature and traditions. Today, 80 hectares of vines are undergoing organic conversion, making the Jean-Marc Brocard estate one of the most important organic vineyards in Burgundy. Our aspiration is that eventually all our vines will be converted. The result is frank, pure, mineral wines, full of freshness, with a strong personality. We produce our wines on almost all the appellations of Chablis, from the 1er Cru to the Grand Cru, including the old vines. In all, we offer nearly twenty vintages to lovers of Burgundy white wines.

Our story

In 1974, Jean-Marc started his estate with one hectare. Today, he is recognised for his expertise of the Chablis terroir. A visionary and above all passionate about his terroir, he tries to tame the Chablis vineyard known to be a mosaic of climates and soils. In the 90's, Julien joined his father and started working on the estate. A few years later, the young winemaker created Domaine de la Boissonneuse where he grows and matures wines using biodynamic methods. His desire: to respect the terroir with cultivation methods that are conducive to the development of the local fauna and flora. In 2005, Julien was awarded the "Agriculture biologique" and then "Demeter" labels for his wines.

Other little stories

"Look, shut up, learn" is how I learned the trade from Louis Petit, a member of my in-laws. Today, I am passing on the estate with the same values that are close to my heart. The expression of each terroir is the key to our work, an everyday task.

From now on, more than 66 hectares are cultivated in organic agriculture at the estate and we are continuing our journey to bring you the diversity of the terroirs of Chablis.
