Domaine Pattes Loup is a relatively young estate, being started by rising star winemaker Thomas Pico in 2005 just outside the village of Chablis. He has slowly been inheriting selection massale vines from his father, converting all of them to organic methods and employing more strict yield control against the wishes of his father. He has also chosen to produce all of his wines naturally, only fermenting with indigenous yeasts and bottling without fining or filtration. His wines exemplify the essence of Chablis with their racy brininess, vitality, and textured density. ‘Vent d’Ange’, which translates to ‘angel wind’, is very bright and vibrant; it fermented and aged in a combination of concrete egg and stainless steel. It has wonderful precision and focus with a mineral-driven intensity, energy, and tension. Opening to subtle matchstick and floral aromas, with a hint of preserved lemon, it proceeds with green apple on the palate and lingering fresh citrus on the finish. Certified organic, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
