Description

'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 kilometers 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 and potential.

Tasting note

This wine features an expressive, rather powerful nose that is efficiently mineral. Milk caramel notes combine with elegant, refined nuances of oak. A hint of sweetness on the palate with flavors of candied fruit, apricot, and quince. This beautiful, full-bodied wine finishes on a generous, slightly acidic note.

Food pairing

The varied and sustained aromatic pallet of this great wine allows a double vocation. As an aperitif or for a convivial meal. It will pair well with seafood, scallops, fish and white meats.

About the producer

Founded in 1791, Domaine Long-Depaquit has established itself as one of the best estates in Chablis, under the ownership and management of the famous Burgundian Bichot Family. Chief winemaker Alain Serveau works closely with estate winemaker Mathieu Mangenot, with both favouring restricted yields and noninterventionist techniques in order to create authentic and elegant Chablis, with crisp acidity and a strong mineral character.
