Dessus la Carriere is made from two lieux dits (Semon and Paradis) that sit above an abandoned limestone quarry. These two parcels are always the first to be harvested by the Picqs, and the last to be bottled. Dessus-la-Carriere is easily the quality equivalent of a top premier cru.

The 2019 Chablis "Dessus La Carrière" comes from vines over 50 years old. It has an intense wet limestone and oyster shell bouquet that is beautifully defined and quintessentially Chablis. The palate is vibrant right from the start, slightly chalky in texture, with a killer line of acidity and a surfeit of green apples mixed with crushed stone on the austere but utterly captivating finish. Highly recommended.
