The 2022 Domaine Pichot Coteau de la Biche Vouvray Sec has a clear, light colour with bright highlights. Aromas of citrus, pink grapefruit and mandarin orange are found on the nose, while the palate offers a wonderfully round and full-bodied structure that brings perfect balance to the wine’s freshness. Mineral overtones make for a straightforward wine, culminating in a long and deeply elegant finish.

Winery & Vintage Info

The Pichot family is one of the oldest in Vouvray with origins as viticulturists and restaurateurs going back to 1739. Their vineyard holdings are located mostly at the top of the village in the prime “premiere coteau” sites of Le Mont, Haut Lieu and Le Marigny with other holdings scattered throughout the appellation. Harvesting is mostly done by hand and yields are kept low at an average 25 hl/ha. All vineyards are now farmed organically with grasses grown between the rows to reduce the uptake of moisture and vigour to the vines.

Domaine Pichot is an amalgamation of the properties of the father (Jean-Claude) ‘Coteau de la Biche’ and the son (Christophe) ‘Peu de la Moriette’, hence the different labels bearing the name Pichot. The Pichot’s are well known for the brilliant quality of the stunning sweet wines, although their dry and demi-sec wines are also superb. Right across the range these are remarkable wines that will age effortlessly for decades (as vintages back to 1950’s very generously shared from the cellar have demonstrated) and will also provide great satisfaction from a young age.

Made from very old vines located above the village very close to beside Clos Baudoin in the Vallee de Nouys where the Pichot family and winery are located.

Served chilled in the summer, this wine is an absolute delight for fans of light aperitifs, revealing floral notes and a sensation of freshness (7 - 9 g residual sugar). Paired with good weather and spring and summer dishes, your guests will feel they have been given a special treat when served with a red mullet and tiger prawn salad with pink grapefruit and avocado. This wine also pairs beautifully with a seafood platter and fish dishes. Serve between 8˚C and 10°C. Winery Notes
