VINIFICATION
Fermented with indiginous yeast in older oak barrels.

AGING
Aged in older oak barrels. Sulfur analysis: 29 mg/L total sulfur, 3 mg/L free sulfur.

NOTES
Thomas Pico is a rising star in the appellation and is taking great risks to farm organically in an inhospitable growing climate. The wines are concentrated and opulent, yet racy and intensely saline. All three 1er Crus are extremely limited.
