Pommard: Closerie des Alisiers 'La rue au Port' 2017

Canny negoçiant Stéphane Brocard owns a small parcel of vines in the Pommard lieux-dit of 'Rue au Porc', which he somewhat confusingly labels as 'Rue au Port' - perhaps, he prefers a maritime rather than porcine association! In any case, the wine is a cracker and we are delighted to have it back after a 2016 vintage that was wiped out by severe frost, hail and mildew.

Stéphane Brocard - Closerie des Alisiers

Stéphane Brocard is a branché Chablisien who found his family's wine business becoming crowded when working alongside his brother and sister-in-law and sister and brother-in-law. An intimate knowledge of Burgundy and a hankering to do his own thing led him to set up a boutique négociant business - Closerie des Alisiers - contracting in small parcels of carefully selected grapes, as well as investing in a precious plot of Pommard, for which he has high aspirations.
