The premier cru of Vosgros lies to the west of the village, on south west facing plot. The Vosgros vines were planted 2/3 in the 1960s and 1/3 in the 1980s and tends to produce a beautifully tensile and complex wine. This, the 'Grand Cru' of the line starts out life with a youthful austerity, but unfolds brilliantly with bottle age to deliver a complex and mineraly expression of Chablis. It is the longest-lived wine in the Picq portfolio.
92 points! The 2016 Chablis Vosgros 1er Cru has a wonderful, quite generous bouquet that oddly has an aroma that implies it saw some oak barrels (Mon. Picq assured me that is not the case!) The palate is well defined, smooth in texture with a touch of ginger infusing the dried honey fruit, again, almost as if there was a little "demi-muid" influence on the finish! Very fine.

90-93 points! (This rocky, southwest-facing site typically produces a less exotic style of wine than Vaucoupin): Full yellow. Aromas of soft citrus fruits, clove and stony minerality. Fine-grained in texture and the tightest of these 2016s, showing apricot, lemon and flint flavours and a complicating saline element that's nicely buffered by sweet fruit. The most vibrant of these 2016s, this premier cru finishes with a whiplash of flavour. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, August 2017
