Champagne Pierre Brocard
Young Thibaud Brocard is the fifth generation of Champagne Brocard Pierre to lead the domaine near the village of Celles-sur-Ource in Côte de Bars in the easternmost part of the region. Côte des Bar, located about an hour north of Chablis in the Aube department of France, is a borderland between Champagne and Burgundy. It was part of Burgundy for centuries until the French Revolution. This cultural association still forms the basis for the region’s winemaking philosophy.
The vision of Thibaud is pretty straightforward: Produce enjoyable and wellmade wines with as little intervention as possible while still showcasing the typicity of the area. Simple, right? The main work takes place in the vineyards where Thibaud and his team spends most of the waking hours. This work lays the foundation for creating the style the Brocard is known for.
Côte de Bars is one of the few areas in Champagne where Pinot Blanc still plays a significant role. So while most of the wines consist of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, you will also find wines that are primarily made on Pinot Blanc.
We are very happy to work with Thibaud and his wines, and we are excited to share them with you.
