Albert Pic Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons
Vintage: 2006 (Current)
Originally founded in 1755, Albert Pic is one of Chablis‘ oldest houses. In 1985 Baron Patrick de Ladoucette took control of the house and began making important changes. His experience in modernizing the Ladoucette cellars in Pouilly-sur -Loire inspired Baron Patrick to make similar changes at Albert Pic: thermo-controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks, sodium lamps in the aging sheds to prevent the disagreeable taste produced by light, and many other improvements. These new installations have produced exceptional results, proving that one does not always have to use oak barrels to make top quality wines. Vaillons has a surface of 32 acres and represents a well-known climate of Chablis. The vines are situated in the middle of the big slope, southwest of Chablis. Wines from this region are full-bodied, fleshy and sharp.
Varietals: 100% Chardonnay
