Champagne

Emmanuel
Brochet

Emmanuel Brochet is an incredibly small Champagne grower, with fewer than 10,000 bottles produced each year in the sleepy village of Villers-aux-Noeuds.

We travel to Champagne every year to attend a tasting put on by a small group of grower houses. It was at one of these tastings that we were introduced to Emmanuel Brochet and were able to taste and learn all about the producer from the man himself.

Wine production at Brochet just began in 2002, although Emmanuel had been working a portion of his family’s vines since 1997. Prior to that, the vines were always rented, and have been in the Brochet family for a few generations. The winery and vineyard itself lie just South of the City of Reims. Vines are sparse in Villers-aux-Noeuds today; only around 30 hectares total.

Emmanuel Brochet owns and farms 2.5 hectares of a vineyard called Le Mont Benoit. The soil is a clay and chalk topsoil with more chalk lying beneath. Brochet grows all three varieties here, 37% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir. The vines are farmed organically.

This is an incredibly small winery, in one room you have the beautiful vertical press, and next to the office a small room for fermentation and aging. At Brochet, all fermentation and aging is done in old oak barrels.
