Jean-Claude Pichot’s family is one of the oldest in Vouvray, with origins as viticulturists and restaurateurs dating back to 1739. The family cellars are located in the charming village of Vouvray, in caverns hewn from the rolling hills which were once quarried to provide stone to construct the grand châteaux of the Loire. Domaine Pichot was established in 1996, uniting the three historic vineyards of the family: Coteau de la Biche, Le Peu de la Moriette, and Le Marigny. The 60 acres of vineyards are all in Vouvray, six miles east of Tours on the right bank of the Loire River.
Comes primarily from vines located further behind the village from vineyards more suitable for sparkling wine. This cuvee is made as a méthode traditionnelle brut without addition of liqueur at disgorgement as there is already some sugar in the wine before ageing on lees. A very fresh and richly complex sparkling Vouvray aged on its lees up to 3 years until disgorgement with each order being prepared and freshly disgorged for us sur commande. Very lively bubbles with ripe intense Chenin flavours, very fresh and quite full bodied. Drinks very well as an aperitif and also throughout the meal with many richer courses being suitable.
