Home > SELECTION > PATTES LOUP (THOMAS PICO)


Thomas Pico started his domaine with 2.4ha vineyards in Courgis located in the edge of Chablis in 2005. Domaine Pattes Loup(means "wolf’s paws") is one of the few "natural wine" in Chablis as well as Alice et Olivier de Moor(in fact Thomas Pico had many advices from Alice et Oliver de Moor).

His father had produced ordinary Chablis, Thomas Pico sharply changed direction to quality oriented vineyards management and wine-making when he inherited father's vineyards. He began to strictly control the yield and stop using all chemical products in the vineyards. It is quite rare in Chablis, because Chablis has big demand from all over the world, so all the Chablis producers seek for volume then quality is not a first priority. So choice is limited for the serious wine connoisseurs.

Thomas Pico cultivates vineyards based on biologic(partly Biodynamie), harvest by hand, with hand sorting. He ferments all his wines using indigenous yeasts. 14-16 months ageing in old barrel and bottled without fining and filtration. (for the 55 years old vines Chablis is fermented in concrete egg-shaped fermenters(30-40%) with the balance in stainless steel.) Pico's wine clearly expresses typicity of Chablis's soil with gentle and tender touch of Vin Nature.

It has a very refined bouquet with scents of lemon sherbet, lemon thyme and a touch of orange blossom. There is fine precision here. The palate is quite saline on the entry, harmonious and saline in the mouth, a twist of sour lemon right on the aftertaste. This is a very well-crafted Chablis Vaillons. RP91,AM91 A ripe and well-layered nose presents notes of fresh white orchard fruit, sea breeze and algae aromas that display a hint of citrus rind. There is both good vibrancy and detail that works well with the relatively voluminous flavors that are shaped by a moderately firm citrus-tinged acid spine on the beautifully long and complex finale. AM92,RP93 A wonderfully broad-ranging nose is composed by a pungent and classic nose of mineral reduction, floral, pear, apple and iodine scents. As is usually the case this is bigger, richer and more powerful than any of the other wines in the range and possesses copious amounts of dry extract that coats the palate on the dense and strikingly long finale.
