Community Tasting Notes (48) Avg Score: 92.5 points

  • 12.9% alcohol. Texturally leaner/linear with a rather unique CA chard aromatic and flavor profile of citrus peel, lemon ice, saline/sea breeze, chalk, and minerals. For me, what impresses most about this wine is its laser like spine of acidity, which really gives the wine cut, energy, definition, and drive/thrust. For what it is worth, unlike some other CT notes, I did not pick up any overt creaminess or oak notes. Lovely wine.

  • Juicy and easy to drink. Pale yellow color. Lots of citrus fruit. Lemon and grapefruit framed well by oaky notes. Mineral and stone. This is a Chard for those "low oak" lovers. The oak is there, but it serves its proper purpose.

  • Absolutely stunning. A step up from the last bottle, with tremendous energy and minerality. The nose unfurls layers of smoke, chalk, and stone, and the palate follows up with a rich but gripping mouthfeel. I think this wine would top many favorites from Burgundy in a blind tasting. Fantastic winemaking in an incredible vineyard.

  • Golden yellow, clear. Floral, big nose with hints of lemon, ginger, baking spice, pineapple. Medium tannin and strong acidity. Salty on the palate, with lots of sour lemon, apple, pear. Medium finish. This is a delicious wine, and it really makes you come back for more.

  • Followed two great bottles of Picq Chablis. Very dense, citrus with enough cut to please any acidophile. I liked this better last year, and will let my remaining bottles rest a while.
