Moutonne 2014 Magnum Header
A high tech vineyard!
A wine of "sheer delight"!

Domaine Long-Depaquit are the sole owners of the small (2.34 ha) but revered Grand Cru vineyard MOUTONNE. 
 
It is located at the heart of the amphitheatre straddling the Grand Crus Vaudesir and Les Preuses. It has a south south-west exposure and with its very steep slopes (almost 40 degrees) and kimmeridgian outcrops it is well protected from the north winds.

Spring frosts can still be a problem and the domaine has gone to the unusual lengths of installing environmentally friendly heated electric wires. To combat worms that feed off the grapes there is an electrical system that causes "sexual confusion" in the worms and destroys their ability to reproduce.
 
The extra care in the vineyard produces a wine of rare character. Moutonne is a Grand Cru Chablis with the style and complexity of a Grand Cru white from the Cote d'Or. It is a wine of intensity and precision, elegance and finesse with extraordinary length. Austen Biss, writer of A Guide to the Wines of Chablis says "They are usually wines of sheer delight".

I'm sure you have read just how terrific the 2014 white vintage is in Chablis where some are calling it the vintage of a lifetime.

Tim Atkin MW has published his 2014 Burgundy Report and he has gone crazy over the Chablis from Domaine Long-Depaquit. Unlike other reviewers Tim has tasted the finished wines from bottle and his reviews are tremendous. Domaine Long-Depaquit are in his Top 25 producers and their top Grand Cru Chablis rate equal with such wines as Bouchard Montrachet, Leflaive Batard-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet, Roulot Meursault Perrierres, Sauzet Chevalier-Montrachet and many other big guns.
 
At the very top of the tree is the Grand Cru Moutonne which Tim Atkin MW describes as "the Montrachet of Chablis". 'nuff said!

Long-Depaquit Moutonne Label Tim Atkin MW: 
The best release yet from this historic "eighth Grand Cru", this is a youthful, compact wine with considerable ageing potential. Savoury, minerally and taut with notes of oyster shall and subtle oak, it's the Montrachet of Chablis. 2016-27. 97 Points
The equal highest rated Chablis of the vintage (above all the Raveneau Crus!)
