The name translates as "over the quarry," for the two parcels that are reserved for this wine grow above an old quarry in a bed of pure Kimmeridgian limestone, essentially one mammoth roche mère, or mother rock. Both parcels were planted in the 1970s, one with a clone, the other with a sélection massale, and the two cover just under five acres of ground. These two parcels are always the first to be harvested by the Picqs, and the last to be bottled.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chablis Dessus la Carriere, always the first to be picked, has a clean and precise bouquet with hints of fresh lime and yellow plum, just fleeting glimpses from within those minerally aromas. The palate is crisp and fresh with superb acidity, cohesive and focused; the richness surfaces towards the finish with notes of almond and even white chocolate. This is excellent.
