Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis Moutonne Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $299.95
Pre Arrival Price $254.95

Long-Depaquit Moutonne Label Tim Atkin MW:  Not quite up to the exalted levels of the 2014 bottling - one of the greatest young Chablis I've ever tasted - but this monopoly Grand Cru white, produced from a combination of 95% Vaudésirs and 5% Preuses, is still an impressive 2016, with peachy, stone fruit flavours, creamy lees and some orange zest. 2019-24. 95 Points

James Suckling Tasting Report: Very energetic, concentrated and powerful flavours of lime and peaches. A wealth of mouthwatering acidity. Superb depth, purity and a long, stony mineral core. Holds long. Try from 2020. 95 Points
Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis Clos Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $163.50
Pre Arrival Price $138.95

Long-depaquir_clos_label
Tim Atkin MW: 
The Bichots' two parcels in Les Clos are in the middle and upper part of the Grand Cru. The resulting wine saw only 35% wood in 2016, but is not short of concentration or power. This is still very young right now, with plenty of perfume and fruit intensity. Layers of complexity will develop with time in bottle. 2019-26. 94 Points
James Suckling Tasting Report: 
Attractive aromas of pears, apples and blossoms with hints of pastry, all leading to a palate that has a smooth and even mouthfeel with fresh flavors. 94 Points

Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis Vaudesirs Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $163.50
Pre Arrival Price $138.95

Long-Depaquit Vaudesirs
Tim Atkin MW: Definitely one of the wines of the vintage at Long-Depaquit, this comes from the south-facing part of Vaudésirs but was picked early to maintain freshness. With 25% barrel fermentation, it's a leesy, waxy, complex wine with understated power complemented by citrus peel and hint of fennel. 2019-26. 96 Points
Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis Preuses Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $145.95
Pre Arrival Price $123.95

Long-Depaquit Preuses Label
Tim Atkin MW: Tasted as a slightly cloudy barrel sample at the domaine, but already showing its inherent concentration and palate length, this is a densely woven, lip-smacking Grand Cru with deftly integrated wood, marked minerality and a waxy mid-palate. Needs time to show at its best. 2019-26. 94 Points
Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis Blanchots Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $145.95
Pre Arrival Price $123.95

Long-Depaquit Blanchots Label
Tim Atkin MW: This east-facing Grand Cru is not as famous as neighbouring Les Clos, but makes wines that can be every bit as good, if very different in style. Subtly oaked and refreshing, with focus and racy acidity instead of raw power. Floral, scented and subtle, it's a wine that's driven by acidity. 2018-26. 94 Points
Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2016
Landed Price $84.95
Pre Arrival Price $71.95

Long-Depaquit Vaillons label
Tim Atkin MW: One of the best Vaillons I've tasted from Bichot's Chablis outpost, this comes from three lieux-dits, with Epinottes representing 90% of the cuvée. There's just a hint of wood here, adding complexity to the leesy, creamy palate, with aniseed and lemon zest on the finish. Classic Left Bank Chablis. 2019-26. 94 Points

Premier and Grand Cru Chablis is still a bargain!
