About Maison Stéphane Brocard
Stéphane Brocard, son of renowned Chablis winemaker Jean-Marc Brocard, struck out on his own in 2007 when the family business started getting a little crowded. He founded the Closerie des Alisiers property in Chablis before continuing to move deeper into the Côte-d’Or. His philosophy throughout: to craft wines of purity, fruit and freshness - authentic and with the utmost respect for the land and the environment, highlighting the specific terroir of each district of Burgundy.
This intimate knowledge of the region, as well as a hankering to blaze his own trail, led him to set up a boutique négociant business contracting small parcels of carefully selected grapes, as well as investing in his own small plot in Pommard. He is known for pushing his vignerons to use organic farming methods and to champion minimal intervention at all stages of production.
Stéphane ultimately believes that his wine should be available at price points that allow people to enjoy them regularly, rather than getting caught up in the Burgundy bubble. Like his father he has succeeded in creating a reputation for creating wines that far exceed their price point.
