Thomas Pico Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons


Thomas Pico is the young third generation winemaker at Domaine Pattes Loup (“Wolf’s Paws”). His grandfather planted massal selected vines on hillside sites near Courgis and Preys, two of the highest areas in Chablis. Having completed his oenology studies in Beaune, Thomas promptly converted his 2.4 hectares of vines over to organics in 2005. He farms strictly according to non-interventionist principles, and has been certified Agriculture Biologique by ECOCERT. As Pico says, “There are wine fashions, people want green wine or wine with sugar, but I make wine like I want to make wine.” Adding to his own holdings he works with a small selection of growers who share his passion for natural viticulture. Alice and Olivier de Moor, fellow Chablisien natural winemakers, have been immensely supportive, putting him in touch with importers who have greedily scooped up the wines with vigour. Today you can find these wines being poured by an ever expanding flock of sommeliers at the hippest wine bars in Paris and New York. Who knows how long we’ll have access to wines from such a rising star, so we’ll enjoy every sip while we can.

All three of Pico’s 1er Crus are extremely limited.
