Wine Description

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.

Sauvignon Blanc Les Carisannes comes from a five-hectare vineyard in Bannay near the Sancerre appellation. The name Les Carisannes is a contraction of the names of the three sisters and grand-daughters of Henry Brochard: CARoline, ISAbelle, and ANNE-Sophie. Stony soils and vinification in stainless-steel tanks yields a fresh tasting wine with notes of minerals.

"Bright and appealingly herbal aromas lead the way to a silk-textured palate flecked with lemon oils and pith, hard autumn orchard fruit, and saline minerality. A final grace note of white licorice lends the finish a fascinating dimension. This is a lot of wine for well under $20."
