Description of Hubert Brochard | Sancerre Blanc | 2020

Domaine Hubert Brochard produces classically styled Sancerre blanc, rosé, and rouge from their family-owned winery in Chavignol. The domaine is now run by the fifth and sixth generation of Brochards with 152 acres under vine in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, and Vin de Pays du Val de Loire.

The domaine is spread across eight communes. These diverse holdings give the Brochards a range of soils. Terres blanches, or Kimmeridgian marl, gives powerful wines. Silex, or flint, yields wines with a strong mineral character, and chalky caillottes bring attractive aromatics to the wines.

Sancerre Tradition comes from six different communes in the Sancerre appellation from approximately 40% limestone, 30% flint, and 30% clay. All the parcels are estate-owned and have an average vine age of 30 years. Grapes are destemmed and pressed pneumatically with vinification entirely in stainless-steel tanks. 

TASTING NOTES

Sancerre Tradition is intended as a classic expression of the appellation with aromas and flavors of citrus, fresh herbs, and elderflower. The wine’s medium weight and texture are lifted by firm acidity. Components of flint and limestone lend a strong mineral character to the finish, making it an appetizing wine for the table.
