"From three parcels around Courgis: La Menarde, Les Malantes and Pattes Loup, hence the name of the domaine. The vines are 40 years old, issued from a massale selection, and yields average just 43hl/ha (in a good year) where 60 is permitted. The balance is very good indeed, with ripe grapefruit, a hint of apricot and refreshing saline minerality. Always benefits from a couple of years – if you can resist!” IMPORTER
Neal Martin in Wine Advocate on one of his favourite producers:
"Perhaps the absence of a couple of grands crus means that his profile is not as high as it might be. But the reason why he has a loyal following, why his wines are much sought after, is simply down to the effort and the talent of Thomas himself. These are tailored wines, very natural and refined, deceptive in their youth because they can age with style. My advice is to buy what you can in 2014 and 2015 and support one of the region’s hardest working and principled winemakers."
Allen Meadows (Burghound) on the Pattes Loup signature:
"The style is full-on and what I would call glyceral and phenolic, which is to say there is a thickly unctuous, even oily texture and a very vinous flavour profile to Pico's wines yet with no lack of supporting acidity that keeps them fresh and bracing.
