Within the house of Albert Bichot, Domaine Long-Depaquit is well known for its careful selection of Chablis styles and we have chosen our favourites of the vintage.

At the heart of the Grand Cru area, the Vaudésirs valley is a textbook example of the geology and history of the Chablis appellation. The vineyards are planted with vines over 40 years old on south-facing steep slopes where the optimal amount of sunshine is guaranteed. The Kimmeridgian clay in the soil comes into play here, providing a wine with a pronounced minerality.

Château Long-Depaquit sits at the centre of the village of Chablis, surrounded by a rose garden. The approach is to limit grape yields in the vineyard, intervention and oak in the winery to develop wines with purity and focus on expression of the individual plots. The winery was modernised in 2014, leading to reduced environmental impact and a step up in quality.

Long-Depaquit are certainly on fine form of late, with their range comfortably and consistently scoring into the mid-90s from Meadows over the last few years, as well as a host of other critics and publications. Meadows describes wines in this bracket as deserving "a special effort to purchase and cellar and will provide memorable drinking experiences". As mentioned the wines are so good, in fact, they often go toe-to-toe with Francois Raveneau’s – now some of the most sought after, and expensive, wines anywhere.

What the critics say:

94-95/100Sarah Marsh MW, World of Fine Wine

"Almost warmer than Les Clos, and at the top it is much riper than at the bottom, with a 40–50% slope. Picked all together. Rich aroma. It is seductive and ripe up-front, and super-intense, but not broad. Quite the opposite. Incredibly focused and powerful on the finish as if squeezed into a tube. Exceedingly long and very salty. This really needs time. Probably the richest, but also one of the best, 2022 Vaudésir that I tasted. 2028–40."

94/100Christy Canterbury MW, Tim Atkin

"Sitting up next to Moutonne, this is just about as much of a dynamo. Spice drawer and apple cobbler dominate from start to finish. There is lots of mid-palate concentration and just enough balancing acidity. All of the vines sit on the south-facing, or l'endroit—as the locals call it, side of the valley."

93-94/100Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

"Glowing primrose colour. Evidently a fleshier wine, that is apparent from the nose. Very classy, a whisper of coconut from the oak, a surge of attractive fruit behind, not too much tension but certainly intensity. Good length with appley notes appearing at the very back. Drink from 2027-2034. Tasted: October 2023."
