Chablis ‘Dessus la Carriere’ Gilbert Picq is a typically concentrated and old school Chablis from Didier. It is made from two parcels of wine called Semon and Paradis which sit above an abandoned limestone quarry. The wine has lots of texture but is typically saline and tangy with citrus, honey, floral and waxy notes.

Brothers Didier and Pascal Picq (sons of Gilbert), run this high quality 13 hectare estate which is based in the small village of Chichée, 3km south of the town of Chablis. Didier is the winemaker and Pascal takes care of the vineyards. They are working towards gaining organic certification with the use of sulphur kept to a minimum and only natural yeasts used. They use no oak, with all fermentation and ageing carried out in stainless steel. Their wines have always impressed us, age gracefully in bottle and offer an opulent style that still retains freshness and characteristic minerality.
