Located in the tiny, quiet village of Chichée, just southeast of Chablis itself, Domaine Gilbert Picq quietly produces riveting, uber classic Chablis from its holdings in and around the village. The Picq family have farmed its small collection of vines for several generations.
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 at every step. They are exceptional values as well as some of the finest examples to be found in the appellation, with the structure and cut to age gracefully for up to twenty years.
The Picq style of Chablis displays the inimitable expression of minerality that Chardonnay picks up in these rolling hillside of limestone-laden vineyards in the Yonne Valley, coupled with racy acidity and fine depth that comes with low yields, meticulous viticulture and winemaking. The wines are naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised in stainless steel tanks to protect the underlying expressions of terroir.
