Pure soil of Chablis, Kimmeridgian is alternate layers of very compact limestone, and softer clayey marls containing marine fossilized bodies (exogyra virgula). Jean-Marc Brocard created this Geologic Chardonnay Collection to allow every soil to reveal its personality and its authenticity through Chardonnay.

Among the more exciting developments is the Chardonnay en Sol wines produced from the same soil types as Chablis but which are located outside the official demarcation. The Portlandien soil type emphasizes the fruit character of chardonnay with less mineral, softer acidity and less leanness.
 
The Kimmeridgien is the best Chablis soil type with layers of dense chalk, clay and fossils and gives a strong minerality and citrus character. Jurassique is a combination of the other soils and vineyard areas and represents the subsoil type of Burgundy – wines display mineral slate notes as well as the citrus and fruit.
 
Malolactic fermentation completed. Citrus notes on the nose with orange blossom. A very pure palate with mandarin aromas which gives it all the delicacy. A fresh wine with a very beautiful mineral energy.
