Didier Picq is deeply respected by his peers in the region and always makes himself available to fellow vignerons, especially the youth of the region. He exudes endless love for wine and is a truly positive force in the world of wine and beyond.
His 2022 Picq Chablis is absolutely killer – I’m happy to bring this one to you for the first time. It comes from a collection of hillside vineyards flush with limestone and vines that are all 20 years old or more from the commune of Chichee.
Vinification takes place in a stainless steel vat so it comes out with tons of pent up energy that slowly unwinds with time in the glass. Green apple, pear and lemon lime notes highlight this one, but the chalky minerality steals the show for me. What a beauty.
