Gilbert Picq GILBERT PICQ CHABLIS DESSUS LA CARRIERE 2015
The name translates as "over the quarry," for the two parcels that are reserved for this wine grow above an old quarry in a bed of pure Kimmeridgian limestone, essentially one mammoth roche mère, or mother rock. Both parcels were planted in the 1970s, one with a clone, the other with a sélection massale, and the two cover just under five acres of ground. These two parcels are always the first to be harvested by the Picqs, and the last to be bottled.
