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
Sancerre Rouge comes from seven different communes in areas with deeper soils better
suited to Pinot Noir. The average vine age is 40 years and harvest is done entirely by hand.
The grapes are destemmed and receive a brief cold maceration before fermentation in
stainless-steel tanks. The wine is aged for one year in used French oak barrels before
100% Pinot Noir
Sancerre Rouge shows aromas and flavors of red berries, herbs, and violets. The palate is rich
with ripe fruit and medium weight with bright acidity and fine tannins. Aging in used French
barrique brings subtle notes of toast and baking spices.
