Albert Bichot, Domaine Long Depaquit Chablis Premier Cru Montmaines 2019, Burgundy, France

Château Long-Depaquit is located at the heart of the village of Chablis, in Burgundy’s Yonne department. A stroll through the estate’s grounds, which boast centuries-old trees and a rose garden, offers a unique, timeless experience. “An exceptional 65-hectare legacy, our vineyards benefit from a sustainable approach to viticulture. Limiting yields and keeping interventions to a minimum during the vinification process help create authentic, mineral, elegant wines. Barrel ageing is used in moderation to best preserve the expression of each terroir. Located on the left bank of the Serein River, ‘les Montmains’ can encompass ‘les Butteaux’ and ‘les Forêts’. Our plot is located in the latter, facing southeast at mid-slope.” The nose reveals fine floral notes and aromas and flavours of toasted almonds. Both rich and concentrated, ‘les Montmains’ boasts a lovely, refreshing finish.
