2016 Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaucopins, Domaine Long Depaquit

Affectionately known as “Petite Moutonne”, due to the fact that the vines have the same exposure and soil type as their famous monopole. And this premier cru deserves to be treated like a grand cru. This has terrific freshness and drive, with great elegance and depth of flavour. It’s mineral, intense and so long, with wonderful vivacity. Very impressive.

2016 Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaucopins, Domaine Long Depaquit
Albert Bichot (Clos Frantin and Long Depaquit)

Founded in 1791, this domaine’s château remains the most impressive in Chablis. Now owned by Beaune-based house Albert Bichot, and benefitting from the expertise of Technical Director Alain Serveau, this is a Chablis domaine on the rise to the top of the appellation. La Moutonne is the wine that the estate is best known for, a monopole in the heart of the Grands Crus, between Vaudésir and Les Preuses. It’s in a natural amphitheatre where the wines can reach stunning ripeness for the region.
