Jean Marc Brocard, Chablis (Burgundy, France) “Sainte Claire” 2012

($20): Borcard hit a bull’s eye with their Chablis in 2012, a relatively riper year.  They harvested a bit early and captured gorgeous mouth-watering acidity in their entire line of wines.  Their village Chablis, dubbed Sainte Claire, is an extraordinary value given the complexity and verve it delivers.  Consumers looking for the grandeur of “unoaked” Chardonnay need to look no further.  It’s mineraly and zesty — and not to be missed.
