Jean-Marc Brocard comes from a peasant family, his father was a farmer in the village of Chaudenay-le-Château. Jean-Marc decision to engage in winemaking has contributed to a pleasant event - in 1971 he married Claudine Petit (childhood sweetheart), the daughter of a winemaker, and this event changed his life. Beginning with acres of vineyards of his father, Emile Petit Brokar created a whole farm of 180 hectares of vineyards in Chablis and Burgundy. Jean-Marc does not use oak barrels, considering that the essence of wine - is an expression of the characteristics of the site, which includes not only the soil but also the climate, and any contact with the tree can completely change and destroy the taste of wine, so the purity of taste his wines undeniable .
Jean-Marc recognizes that the development of the company made a significant contribution grower Louis Petit, who instilled Jean Marc sense of tradition and respect for nature, showing that practicing modern methods, it is possible to maintain old traditions. Jean-Marc says: "It is true fault lies in the soil, where it originates. Technique - a very important element in the production of wine, but it is only assistance, wine - is to a large extent a product of the soil. Earth Chablis are extraordinary and can not be found anywhere else in the world, so I believe in the future of Chablis even in the next millennium. " Since 2001, the vineyards are cultivated using biodynamic methods without the use of pesticides.
