Domaine Long-Depaquit are in Tim Atkin MW's Top 25 producers and their top Chablis rate up there with the very best as the scores below testify.

All wines are available at a 15% Pre Arrival Discount. Please don't delay.
 
Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2016
Landed Price $84.95
Pre Arrival Price $71.95
18 bottles available

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

James Suckling Tasting Report: This offers some swanky reductive grapefruit and toasty oak on the nose. A palate that has punchy acidity and plenty of fruit weight. Great depth and drive here. Acidity is salient. Really fresh. Drink or hold. 92 Points

Chablis 1er Cru Montmains 2016
Landed Price $89.95
Pre Arrival Price $76.50
11 bottles available

long-depaquit montmains label Burghound: A pretty and perfumed if not classic nose displays mildly exotic aromas of dried apricot, white peach, floral and subtle ocean breeze nuances. I very much like the textured mouth feel of the solidly concentrated and stony medium weight flavors that deliver better depth and persistence as well as more evident salinity on the agreeably dry finish. One to consider. (Drink starting 2021). 91 Points
Chablis Vaudesirs Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $163.50
Pre Arrival Price $138.95
14 bottles available

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

Chablis Blanchots Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $145.95
Pre Arrival Price $123.95
4 bottles available

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

Chablis Preuses Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $145.95
Pre Arrival Price $123.95
2 bottles available

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

Frantin Malconsorts Dinner header
 
Domaine du Clos Frantin: 9 years of Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2009-2017. Dinner at Ryne. Thursday 28 November

A very special dinner for lovers of great Burgundy

Les Malconsorts is an exceptional 1er Cru. Being located alongside La Tache and less than 400 metres from Romanee-Conti it comes as no surprise. Domaine du Clos Frantin own a substantial 1.76 ha parcel with a vine age of around 40 years. Jasper Morris MW says "Aux Malconsorts was first taken out of scrubland and planted with vines in 1610, relatively late for this part of the Cote. Nonetheless it is an exceptional vineyard, one of my three favourite premier crus along with Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses and Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St-Jacques."  

The first vintage of Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts we imported was 2009. Each year since the wine has been one of our most popular products.

Now, after 9 vintages, we have decided it is time to do a very special dinner. We will serve all 9 vintages from 2009 to 2017. This is a rare opportunity to taste a serious vertical of one of Burgundy's most popular and highly regarded Premier Crus. For those with the wine in their cellar you can taste and gauge where your bottles will be at without raiding your own stocks.

The dinner will be at Ryne where Donovan Cooke will showcase his classically styled French cusine. To read more about Ryne click here.
 
Donovan Cooke For those of you who don't know Donovan he has quite a CV. Starting in Europe, he worked his way through the Savoy Hotel, Waterside Inn in Bray, Harvey's in London and La Cote St Jacques in Burgundy. In 1997 he shifted his focus to Melbourne where he co-opened the highly influential restaurant Est Est Est, followed by Luxe (awarded 3 hats in its first year) and Ondine (Best New Restaurant, The Age Good Food Guide).
 
Donovan was presented with the reigns of the Derby Restaurant and Bar at The Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club. He served as Chef de Cuisine for the next 6 and a half years. He has  returned to Melbourne to start this latest venture - Ryne. 
 
Taste 9 vintages with dinner for less than the cost of the latest release!
