Marc Brocard winery will be on hand to walk you through the intricacies of this wonderful region.  Grand Cru Chablis are some of the world’s finest Chardonnays.

The Chablis region is in the north part of the Burgundy region in France. The grapes are almost all Chardonnay and are used to create a dry white wine known for the purity of its aroma and taste. The cool climate produces wines with more acidity and less fruitiness than Chardonnay wines grown in warmer areas. Chablis wines tend to have less oak than wines produced in other parts of Burgundy.

Grand Cru is French for "great growth" and is used to designate a vineyard known for producing exceptional wine. It is the highest classification of for vineyards in Burgundy or Alsace.

This is a premium tasting.
