Gold Medal Winning Chablis Grand Cru Les Vaudesirs 2012 from Long-Depaquit

Long-Depaquir Vaudesirs 2012

Don't miss this Gold Medal Winning Chablis...

 

The Chablis vineyard Vaudesirs is on the heart of the Grand Cru section. It enjoys a similar excellent slope and orientation to Les Preuses. The wines are floral with spicy fruit that develops nutty characteristics with time. The wines can be drunk young, but they also age gracefully and beautifully. Austen Biss asks "Is this the best Grand Cru. Possibly". Not everyone gravitates to Les Clos!

 

Domaine Long-Depaquit have about 2.6 ha with vines over 40 years of age. The steep slopes require a winch to pull the plough through the vineyards.


IWC Gold Medal 2014The 2012 vintage of Long-Depaquit's Vaudesirs won a Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge this year.

 

We are fortunate to have secured a nice allocation of this exciting Grand Cru.

Long-Depaquit Vaudesirs Burghound: (from a parcel of 1.5 ha; ~25% new wood). Here the admirably pure nose is slightly more complex with a pleasingly nuanced nose of pear, sea breeze, white flowers and wet stone. There is excellent punch to the detailed, intense and palate drenching broad-shouldered flavors that culminate in an explosive, salty and dry finish that once again displays just a touch of austerity. There is a lush character to the mid-palate yet it remains very well-balanced. This should be quite good though at this point it appears that the Les Clos will ultimately be the more complex effort. 92 Points

And Another Top Grand Cru 

Les Clos

The best known and most loved wine of Chablis. It is the largest of the Grand Crus and the epitome of Grand Cru Chablis. The wine is powerful, yet gentle with great depth and appeal. It is mineral and full and capable of extended cellaring. 

 

Long-Depaquit own two parcels, one mid slope, the other at the top, totalling about 2.5 ha. The wine mid slope provides more richness, the top more acidity. The two plots are blended.

 

Burghound: (from a 2.5 ha parcel; ~35% new wood). This displays light to moderate wood influence that allows the floral, yellow fruit, white peach and apricot suffused nose free reign. The textured, intense and mouth coating medium-bodied flavors offer impressive depth, plenty of minerality and outstanding intensity on the long, focused and palate staining finish where a touch of austerity appears. A fine Les Clos that delivers serious length. 2018+ A "Sweet Spot" wine. 93 Points
