Gilbert Picq’s children Didier, Pascal and Marilyn manage this renowned Chablisien domaine in the tiny village of Chichée.
Indigenous yeast fermentations and ageing in stainless steel tanks protect the underlying expressions of terroir. Picq is a classic case of how truly amazing wines can be made from more humble vineyards when given the utmost attention at every step. The family is gifted in old vines at the Villages and Premier Cru levels, and they hope to someday obtain vines within a Grand Cru vineyard.
Up and down the hieracrchy, the Picq style displays the inimitable expression of minerality that Chardonnay translates in the limestone-laden vineyards of the Yonne Valley, coupled with racy acidity and fine depth that comes with low yields, and meticulous viticulture and winemaking.
