Magnificent Moutonne Grand Cru Monopole "Sheer delight"!

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".

 

We have a little of the exceptional 2010 vintage in stock. If you have not tried this wine you really should.

Chablis Moutonne Monopole 2010

Normally $135.00 

Special today only $115.00

 

Moutonne Label Tanzer: Subtle aromas of pineapple, wet stone, hazelnut and toast (both this and the Vaudesir were fermented in about 25% oak, including 10% new). Round, silky and pure, with lovely stony cut contributing to an impression of finesse. This very rich, dry wine boasts more stuffing than the Vaudesirs but it's all in reserve today. Most impressive on the strong, dusty finish, which builds inexorably and leaves behind almond and marzipan qualities. The Vaudesirs is sexier today but this may well outpace it in ten years. 94 (+?)
