Some very ripe peaches and mangoes, as well as light aromas of honeysuckle. The palate has a succulent, juicy core of fleshy mangoes and nectarines. Neat and energetic. Drink-now style.
There is a hint of mineral reduction to the evidently ripe array of various white orchard fruit aromas, and in particular white peach, along with hints of citrus peel and petrol. The sleek and delicious medium weight flavors are slightly more tightly wound, all wrapped in a saline and equally refreshing finish where a hint of bitter lemon emerges.
Chalky, citrus nose and rich, waxy, mineral palate of enduring green apple, honeyed pear and lemon zest flavours.
The 2017 Chablis Domaine Sainte Claire is appreciably superior, wafting from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, wheat toast and dried white flowers. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, glossy and textural, with more concentration, depth and tension. With substantial holdings of some 140 hectares, many of them cultivated organically, Jean-Marc Brocard's Préhy-based estate is one of Chablis's largest producers. It's an estate in motion, with increasingly environmentally responsible viticulture and Stockinger foudres complemented by stainless steel and barrels in the cellar. As is generally the case, the 2017 vintage marks a step up over 2016, and I look forward to revisiting these wines once they've completed their élevage to gain a more definite sense of where Brocard's wines are today and where they are headed.

The 2017 Chablis Sainte Claire (Organic), which comes from the incline just outside the winery in Préhy, has a floral bouquet with pressed white flowers rather dominating the fruit profile. The palate is fresh and tensile on the entry, a very flinty and linear Chablis but with commendable precision on the finish. Give this another year in bottle so that the terroir can develop on the nose.(NM)
