Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis Grand Cru 'les Vaudésirs'
The depth really is convincing, driving so long on the finish
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.
"These south-facing, steeply elevated vines that are over forty years old sit in the most clay-rich parts of this famous vineyard." Tom, Wine Guru
"This was the first vineyard to be picked and has benefitted from the decision. Pale colour with a noticeably reductive nose. There is an attractive tension of fruit, and the weight you would expect from this cru. Enough concentration of fruit and not too ripe, indeed builds well at the back." 92-96/100, Jasper Morris MW
"Some attractively toasty oak makes an appearance here, while the fruit is in the yellow-grapefruit, lemon and peach-custard zone. The palate has a very rich feel with so much flavor. The depth really is convincing, driving so long on the finish. Drink over the next eight years." 93-94/100, James Suckling
"Though ripe and fleshy, this maintains integrity, featuring apricot, honeysuckle and seashore aromas and flavors. The lively structure lends focus and drive. Drink now through 2024." 91/100, Wine Spectator
94/100, Tim Atkin
