Domaine Pattes Loup

Growing up surrounded by a vigneron father and grandfather, Thomas Pico discovered a passion for vine-growing at an early age. After completing his viticulture and oenology studies in Beaune, he returned to the family Domaine, Bois d’Yver, in 2004. In 2005 Thomas took back 8 ha of vines from the family domaine for himself and also began planting his own vines on the lieu-dit Pattes Loup, after which his domaine is named. The first bottled vintage under the Domaine Pattes Loup label was 2006. Today, based in the village of Courgis, Thomas organically farms 25 hectares of vines. A meticulous, nature first, approach in the vineyard together with a style of thoughtful, unrushed winemaking unique in Chablis make for some of the most complex, pure and lively wines in the region. The Domaine was certified organic in 2009. The whites are fermented and aged in a mixture of used oak fut, demi-muid, concrete and steel tanks depending on the cuvée and vintage. The wines undergo a long, slow ageing of between 12 to 30 months, again depending on vintage and cuvée, before bottling. The later bottlings of Butteaux and Chablis Vent d’Ange spend a year in used oak fut and two years in tank. These are brilliant wines of texture, nuance, vibrancy and purity, quite unlike anything else in Chablis.
