Gilbert Picq Chablis '18

Since 1976, Picq has always been a great example of expressing Chablis' terroir through Chardonnay with such precise minerality that is unmistakable to the area. Rich in limestone-laden vineyards, their wines are timeless and of the upmost respect in which Chardonnay does such a great job at picking up and projecting unto itself. The family currently works on old-vine sites at the villages and premier cru level. The winery is, in fact, a classic case of how truly amazing wines can be made from more humble vineyards when given the utmost attention on all levels.

One could propose that is Picq's calling card - a value wine composed of villages vines, but wines with the complexity of premier cru. The proof is in the work. They are located in the tiny village of Chichée, just southeast of Chablis proper. Today, Gilbert's three children run the winery, each owning a crucial aspect to the business. Their wines are naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel. You will not find a single barrel at the estate. Their work is in the vineyards, and you can feel it in their wines. Racy acidity from the limestone, with bright citrus, white flowers and notes of honey and chalky stone.

We have highlighted his wines before and have said this many times - Picq is truly one of the great underdogs of Chablis. Perhaps under the radar for some, but lucky for you, we are waving the flag in your direction! Stop by today and pick up a bottle of the latest vintage to have arrived.
