100% Chardonnay (Subtly Oaked) - "Les Vaucopins" is a
Premier Cru that is quite unique within the wide range
of the Long-Depaquit estate’s wines.
Located on the right bank of the Serein River, this
vineyard is in the commune of Chichée, 3 kilometres east
of Chablis. Its terroir has an uncanny resemblance to the
Grand Crus: southern exposure, steep slopes and numerous
Kimmeridgian outcrops. Consequently, the subsoil lends
these wines a very specific personality. With its noble
origin and often warmer than average conditions for this
terroir, this high-end Premier Cru has definite promise
Tasting - Very precise floral notes on the nose
followed by subtle notes of oak and fresh fruit. Good
structure on the palate. This wine is tangy, well balanced
and already showing the lovely fullness one would expect
from a Premier Cru. A combination of linden blossom and
almond give way to a long, rounded finish. Food/wine pairing
This wine features an expressive, rather powerful nose that
is predominantly mineral. Milk caramel notes combine with
elegant, refined nuances of oak. A hint of floral on the palate
with flavors of candied fruit, apricot, and quince. This beautiful,
full-bodied wine finishes on a generous, slightly acidic note.
Serve between 11 and 13°C (52°F - 55°F).
May be enjoyed now or laid down for between 5 and 10 years.
