Albert Bichot, Domaine Long Depaquit Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaucopins 2017

“Les Vaucopins” is a premier cru which is quite unique within the wide range of the Long-Depaquit Estate wines. Located on the right bank of the Serein River, this plot of vineyard is on the Chichée commune, 3 kilometres east of Chablis. Its terroir has an uncanny resemblance to the grand crus: south exposure, pronounced slopes and numerous Kimmeridgian outcrops. Consequently, the subsoil provides a very specific character of expression to these wines. “Les Vaucopins” premier cru asserts itself firstly by its attractive pale yellow color with soft honeysuckle reflections. It has an expressive and rather powerful mineral-dominating nose. Milk caramel notes combine with an elegantly fine and oaky aroma. On tasting, an impression of sweetness is detectable; crystallized fruit, apricot, and quince. This beautifully full wine gives way to an ample and finely acidic finale.
