Thomas Pico has established himself as as a devoted organic grower in the inhospitable vinegrowing region of Chablis. Pico’s naturally-farmed and produced wines are the essence of “Chablis”, but not only in their briny minerality. There is a sense of vitality to the wines, and a textured density that can only come from dedicated work in the vineyards and transparent winemaking. Butteaux is a superb left bank 1er Cru at the south-western tip of the 1er Cru Montmains. Pico does a 'mise tardive', meaning he matures the wine for an extended period on fine lees – both in tank and neutral barrels. Bursting with confit lemon, apricot and honey flavours, this cuvee is satiny, multidimensional and deep on the palate, with stunning energy and cut despite its long élevage, concluding with a long, sapid finish.
