Pichot Sparkling Vouvray Brut 2016
DOZEN BUY. Fine quality vouvray bubbly.
The Pichot family is one of the oldest grape growers in Vouvray, France going back to 1739. Their vineyard holdings are located mostly in the prime sites of Le Mont and Haut Lieu at the top of the village, with several other holdings scattered throughout the appellation. All harvesting is done by hand and yields are kept low at an average 25 hl/ha.
Domaine Pichot is an amalgamation of the properties of the father (Jean-Claude) ‘Coteau de la Biche’ and the son (Christophe) ‘Peu de la Moriette’, hence the different labels bearing the name Pichot.
Recently named by Revue de Vin de France (one of the most respected French wine critiques) as the top sparkling producer in Vouvray.
100% chenin blanc (hand harvested) estate grown fruit, 4 years on lees. Terrific concentration of apples, minerality and freshness in this fine French bubbly. Another excellent growing season in the Loire in 2016 which delivered beautiful quality and ripe fruit with fresher acidity than the previous vintage. This is on song and one of the best quality vouvrays we have seen at this price.
