2018 Picq Chablis Dessus la Carrière

Posted by Ian McFadden

For a very long time, Picq's Chablis has been the go-to wine of value hunters after the real deal.

For us, Dessus la Carrière is always the top choice. Simply put, it's everything that you could want from a villages Chablis and then some.

Dessus la Carrière comes from two lieu-dits that are above an old limestone quarry. When you taste the wine, it's difficult not to think about that.

The Dessus la Carrière exemplifies Picq's signature of combining clear mineral cut with a detailed punch and gripping presence. 

This is a remarkably consistent bottle and the 2018 represents the vintage at its best. The 2018 vintage was ripe, but the best examples show a terroir imprint and have plenty of snap.  

The 2018 Picq Chablis Dessus la Carrière offers a riveting, finely etched minerality, and an impressive, lengthy finish. Seashell Chablisien minerality is in full force along with currents of citrus and savory undercurrents. 

I can't think of another Chablis that's this classic, this consistent, and offers as much value. Our offers for Dessus la Carrière sell out quickly. Our advice is to order soon rather than later. 

To order, email offers@crushwineco.com or call the store at (212) 980-9463.

Burghound: "A cool, pretty and relatively elegant nose reflects notes of quinine, citrus and iodine. Once again there is excellent density to the appealingly textured and vibrant middle weight flavors that possess plenty of minerality on the bitter lemon, focused and sneaky long finish. This is a very fine villages and worth your interest."
