2018 Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaucopins, Domaine Long Depaquit

This comes from vines that are on the slope at the top of the vineyard. Lemon oil and orange blossom on the nose, with a nice mealy character, plenty of gunflint and lovely salinity here. Nice density and pretty finesse on the finish, with a lovely phenolic character. This is complex and intense with lovely balance. Beautiful.

2018 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.
