"The 2017 Chablis Vosgros apparently had a difficult fermentation that was very slow this year and as a consequence it will probably be bottled later, early next year. The bouquet is more muted than the Vaucoupin at the moment partly because of the tardy ferment, so this is difficult to read at the moment. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, very focused and lively, delivering the power and precision towards the grippy finish. It will certainly merit three or four years in bottle, so have a cellar handy."

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 has farmed its small collection of vines for several generations. Today, the estate is in the deft hands of Gilbert's two sons Didier and Pascal, and his daughter Marilyn Picq, each with their defined roles: Pascal is in the vines, Didier is in the cellar, and Marilyn manages the business. The Picq style of Chablis displays the inimitable expression of minerality that the chardonnay only picks up in these rolling, hillside, limestone-laden vineyards of the Yonne Valley, coupled with racy acidity and fine depth that comes with low yields, meticulous viticulture and winemaking." -Importer
