Gilbert Picq Chablis 2015

Gilbert Picq Chablis 2015

Sku: 012319

Didier, Pascal, and Marilyn Picq carry on their father Gilbert's tradition of making a wonderfully classic expression of Chablis in the rolling hills of the of the Yonne Valley. Since 2006 the Picqs have used only 100% natural yeasts, which along with very low yields and aging in stainless steel produces wines of great depth and intensity of flavor. The village level Chablis 2014 we are offering here is every bit the equal of other producers' Premier Cru offerings.

It is a classic expression of Chablis with its finely knit texture, flinty quartz like minerality and racy acidity that keeps it detailed and lively in the glass. Green apples and crisp pear flavors mingle with hints of wet stones and exotic spices with razor like precision and perfect balance on the finish. Served with fresh seafood or shellfish, and you will find yourself in Chablis heaven!

- Rand Sieger, 67 Wine Buyer

Tasting notes
Classic in every sense with tart apple, lime, flint and great tension.

There is a touch of mineral reduction to the cool and airy aromas of green fruit and iodine. The racy, intense and well-detailed middle weight flavors possess a discreet minerality on the lemon-infused and very dry finish. This should drink well early but also reward a few years of bottle age if desired.

Other text
The Domaine of Gilbert Picq et Ses Fils is one of the lovely, small, up-and-coming producers that dot the Chablisienne landscape. Located in the village of Chichée, just to the southeast of Chablis proper, the Picq family has exploited its small parcels of vines for several generations, with father Gilbert now having fully retired and handed over the reigns to his two sons, Didier and Pascal, and his daughter Marilyn Picq. Pascal is in charge of the vineyards for the family, while Didier mans the cellars and makes the wines, with both brothers more than content to leave the office side of the business to Marilyn. The Picq style of Chablis is very classic, with the inimitable expression of minerality that the chardonnay only picks up in these rolling hillside vineyards of the Yonne Valley, coupled to racy acidity and fine depth that comes with low yields, meticulous winemaking and fine parcels of vines.
