GD Offer

Something to Picq your interest

Great Domaines Gilbert Picq

The first half of our 2020 burgundy wines arrived last week, with the balance due around the end of June. We will soon be launching our annual allocation campaign for the 2020 vintage and, as a prelude to it, we wanted to share an offer with you today on a new domaine that has joined Great Domaines: Gilbert Picq from Chablis.

Dear Reader,

The wines of Domaine Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier were the first from Burgundy to be imported into South Africa by Great Domaines, now over twenty years ago. The wines of Burgundy have remained at the heart of the business ever since, and the portfolio we have today all comes down to passion, perseverance and the strength of relationships.

GD’s Charlotte Dagueneau has long had a friendship with one Fabien Espana who runs the best establishment in Chablis (Wine•Not) to drink the best of the best from the appellation. We had a shortlist of Chablis producers in mind and whom we wished to contact, and when Charlotte asked Fabien if there was one domaine we should approach, who would that be, without hesitation he said Didier and Pascal of Domaine Gilbert Picq.

The key things to know
Located in the tiny village of Chichée, southeast of Chablis.
Domaine is run by Gilbert Picq’s children – Didier, Pascal and Marilyn.
Low yields, meticulous work both in the vineyards and cellar.
Wines are naturally fermented, with élevage in stainless steel tanks.
Zero oak is used.
Four village-level wines are made and two premiers crus.

Domaine Gilbert Picq is a special example of how exceptional wine can be made from ‘lesser’ vineyards, when expertise and attention to detail are applied in both vineyard and cellar. The village wines are treated with just as much reverence as the premier cru holdings. Didier feels the wines from the village cru vineyards in many ways serve as the flagship wines for the domaine.

We have set aside 30 mixed cases of 6 bottles of Picq Chablis from the 2020 vintage.
