Domaine Pichot is a 24Ha family estate in Vouvray on the right bank of the Loire, where vignerons dedicate their time to the cultivation of Chenin Blanc, locally coined ‘Pineau de la Loire’, to produce dry, sweet and sparkling whites. The Coteau de la Biche is the only vineyard of the estate, planted on silex layered over limestone slopes. It is the spot of choice to make dry whites of great class, displaying the richness of ripe Chenin with a minerality that can rival that of the grandest Chablis. The la Biche undergoes a combination of ferments in both stainless steel and 400 litre barrels. 2022 was an exceptional vintage for Vouvray yielding wines of perfume, finesse and lip-smacking freshness.
Brilliant very pale straw colour with a subtle glimmer of green around the edges and a watery hue. Fresh pear and red apple scents are trailed by hints of cinnamon, honeysuckle and quince. Showing good intensity and possessing a nicely rounded feel are fleshy pear and red apple fruits. Also chiming in are quince, delicate honeysuckle and traces of cinnamon. Fresh acidity finishing dry with plenty of energy and length.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
