Patrick is a micro-négociant and he has a great relationship with his sources. He buys the grapes by the parcel rather than by weight and he created a profit-sharing arrangement that keeps the growers invested in their mutual success. He is an extremely resourceful manager—we recall one harvest when rain was threatening and he promised the grape pickers a case of Jameson Irish Whiskey if they met the deadline. A compelling incentive!

While Patrick is very hands on with his growers in the vineyards, he is decidedly "hands off" in the cellar. He eschews corrections of any kind: no enzymes, acidifying, chaptalization (unless absolutely necessary) etc. And he uses only neutral barrels for aging the 1er and Grand Cru.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 93
"The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Séchet is taut and chiseled, unwinding in the glass to reveal aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, beeswax and crushed chalk. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and incisive, it will require and reward a bit of bottle age." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 94
"Crystal clear like a mountain stream, a light oak influence adds a note of lanolin to the apple, melon and lemon fruit. Turns more sleek and defined on the long, mineral- and herb-tinged aftertaste."
