There is a character very reminiscent of the sea about this wine, like a delicious oyster, with iodine and saline notes, and good viticulture and lower yields help to give the wine great texture and balance.

    Thomas Pico

    100% Chardonnay (12.5% alc.)

    Log in to view prices New

    Given the 80% shortfall in his 2016 Chablis, and with five full time employees to pay at Pattes-Loup, Thomas had to lean on friends to help balance the books, and purchased this extraordinarily good high altitude chardonnay from friends such as Etienne Fort (see wine numbers 29 and 30) and Baptiste Delmas working on the highest vineyards in Limoux. The earlier harvest date enabled Thomas to pick the grapes and press the juice, before shipping up to his cave in Chablis where it was aged in cuve during the winter before bottling in April. It is a delicious well balanced wine, with ripe citrus fruits, good texture and a saline finish. For drinking now to 2018.

    Domaine Pattes Loup

    100% Chardonnay (12% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    This comes from three parcels (two hectares) around Courgis: la Menarde, les Malantes and Pattes Loup, hence the name of the domaine. The vines are 40 years old, issued from a massale selection, and yields average just 43hh (60 permitted). This wine was aged for 13 months, two thirds in stainless steel, one third in seven hectos cement eggs. The balance in 2014 is very good indeed with ripe grapefruit, hint of apricot and saline minerality possibly due to the underlying limestone. For drinking now to 2019.
