Jules Brochet Prémice is a brut nature sparkling wine made by Jules Brochet in the AOC Champagne, in Champagne (France) with the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier varieties.
Pierrec Brochet is an oenologist from a family with a strong winemaking tradition who, after studying at the Avize wine school, learned some alternative methods from Jacques Selosse to get the best expression of the soil. After taking over the family vineyards and acquiring several plots in Taissy, a village south of Reims, he devoted himself to making wines that reveal the typicity of the estate’s different plots, allowing the wine to express itself freely.
Jules Brochet Prémice comes from three different terroirs: Chardonnay from Taissy, Pinot Noir from Mailly and Pinot Meunier from Barzy sur Marne. Working with an environmentally friendly philosophy, the winegrower strives to maintain the natural balance of the vine and the terroir and insecticides are prohibited.
In the winery, the Jules Brochet Prémice grapes are selected to begin the champenoise method with a first spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and a second fermentation in the bottle. No final dosage is added during disgorging.
Under the name Prémice, a term that refers to the first fruit of a new harvest year that was offered to the Gods in ancient times, Jules Brochet Prémice is a statement of the fruitiness and freshness contained in the bottle. A champagne worthy of gods.
