Domaine Gilbert Picq et Ses Fils Chablis Dessus la Carriere Chardonnay Burgundy 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Dessus la Carrière is made from two lieux-dits: 33 year-old vines on west-facing Semon and 30 year-old vines at Paradis which faces due south. The two sites share a very unusual sub-soil of solid limestone rock; they sit above an abandoned limestone quarry. The age of the vines and the terroir of uneroded rock make for a bracing, textbook expression of minerality. Aging in stainless steel tanks allows this to come through with great purity and transparency.
