The Pichot family is one of the oldest in Vouvray with origins as viticulturists and restaurateurs going back to 1739. Their vineyard holdings are located mostly at the top of the village in the prime “premiere coteau” sites of Le Mont, Haut Lieu and Le Marigny with other holdings scattered throughout the appellation. Harvesting is mostly done by hand and yields are kept low at an average 25 hl/ha. All vineyards are now farmed organically with grasses grown between the rows to reduce the uptake of moisture and vigour to the vines.
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. The Pichot’s are well known for the brilliant quality of the stunning sweet wines, although their dry and demi-sec wines are also superb. Right across the range these are remarkable wines that will age effortlessly for decades (as vintages back to 1950’s very generously shared from the cellar have demonstrated) and will also provide great satisfaction from a young age.
Clear, clear colour, luminous reflections. Nose with citrus aromas: pink grapefruit and mandarin. The mouth offers a nice ample and voluminous structure in a great equilibrium of freshness. The minerality presence gives a straight character to the whole, long and full of elegance. To drink immediately.
