Gilbert Picq & Ses Fils Chablis 2011
The 2011 Chablis, tasted from an approximate final blend, is rich, luscious and generous, especially within the context of the vintage. It shows lovely depth in its yellow stone fruits, spices and licorice. The style is quite broad, rich and appealing. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Very nice Chablis with a bit of flinty minerality, nice acidity, lemon pith, maybe a touch of lime. Excellent QPR.
External Reviews for Gilbert Picq & Ses Fils Chablis
The generic Picq 2011 Chablis offers scents and palate saturating flavors of fresh lemon, Rainier cherry and salted, herbed chicken stock. Invigoratingly bright and lusciously juicy, its firm palate underlain by stone and chalk, this finishes with energetic persistence. Twelve thousand bottles of this went to the U.S. alone, so tap into this outstanding value and exemplar of its lowly appellation while you still can. I suspect it will perform admirably through at least 2016.
Bright pale yellow with green highlights. A ripe pineapple scent leaps out of the glass, joined by candied lemon peel and sexy spices. Sweet, supple and fruity; an easygoing, round, very showy vin de plaisir with a note of white truffle. Finishes chewy and persistent.
