  2011 Domaine Pattes Loup/Thomas Pico Chablis: Chablis
Straw-yellow. Fresh apricot, ginger and a suggestion of exotic fruits on the nose, plus a complicating leesy nuance. Rich, ripe and sweet but with lively sappy acidity framing and intensifying the stone fruit flavors. Very ripe and glyceral but nicely dry on the supple, building finish. 89
  2011 Domaine Pattes Loup/Thomas Pico Chablis: Cotes de Jouan
Bright gold-tinged yellow. Very ripe, expressive nose combines apricot, honey, lemon zest and an exotic leesy quality; more chardonnay than Chablis. This premier cru's Chablis character is much more apparent on the sweet, plump but juicy palate, which shows a lightly saline character and good minerality to the stone fruit flavors. 90
  2011 Domaine Pattes Loup/Thomas Pico Chablis: Beauregard
Bright green-tinged yellow. Pink grapefruit, lime and crushed stone on the nose. Silky in texture and nicely concentrated, showing a juicy character and a lightly saline quality to the reticent flavors of lime and peach. Classically dry, subtle Chablis with good cut. And brighter and tighter on the back end than the Cote de Jouan, finishing with a note of powdered stone and lovely reserve. 91
  2011 Domaine Pattes Loup/Thomas Pico Chablis: Butteaux
Good bright yellow. Bright, fruit-driven aromas of peach and apricot. Densely packed, rich and ripe but with noteworthy subtlety to its flavors of crystallized lemon and orange peel, peach and minerals. Round, silky and stuffed with fruit but has the brisk acidity to buffer its ripeness of fruit. Finishes with sneaky length. 92
