Domaine Pattes Loup 2010 Chablis

An outstanding Chablis from Thomas Pico's fast-rising Domaine Pattes Loup; made from organically-grown fruit from high-altitude vineyards. This is a classic Chablis, still with oyster shell minerality, but with added textural interest thanks to the fact that 20% of the juice spends time in large older oak barrels and a further 15% in concrete biodynamic eggs. The rest of the fruit, from 50+-year-old vines, was matured in stainless steel and the end result is a wine of the clarity and purity that you'd expect from a fine Chablis producer but with added complexity and interest on the palate. I opened my wallet and purchased some of this. It's very impressive. $39.95. Imported by Eurocentric. 0405 232 349.
