Brocard Chablis Vaulorent 1er Cru 2016
Vaulorent is a part of Fourchaume, one of the best known Premiers Crus of the Chablis. But Vaulorent could be considered as the first Grand Cru because it offers wines of a very high quality.
It is the only Premier Cru growing on Grand Cru hill, beside the Grand Cru Les Preuses.
The chardonnay is grown on Kimmeridgian soils, and fermented with Natural yeast. The alcoholic fermentation and maturing occur on the lees in Foudre for 14-15 months. The wines undergo full Malolactic fermentation.
