2009 Long-Depaquit, Chablis Les BlanchotsMar. 2011
A hint of sulfur, the aromatic depth gets better and better as it recedes. Textured, layered, beautiful flavours and balance. The flavours further expand – super!
2007 Long-Depaquit, Chablis Les BlanchotsMar. 2011
Fine and clean aromas – understated ripe citron. The flavours are lovely; mineral and chalky with excellent acidity. The flavour ingrains itself. Super!
2007 Long-Depaquit, Chablis Les BlanchotsApr. 2009
A dense but somehow tense core of fruit. Fat, very good acidity that seems to ooze flavour from all directions. Finishes longer if not showing the same bare rocks of the two 1er crus.
2006 Long-Depaquit, Chablis Les BlanchotsApr. 2008
A deep and slightly brooding nose. The palate is ripe and has just enough acidity – but it’s not too fat. Opens out into a good mineral finish.
2006 Lupé-Cholet, Chablis Les BlanchotsApr. 2008
There’s a little hidden depth to the nose overlayed by faint citrus notes. The entry is rather soft – no attack – but it fills out nicely in the middle and brings a good length of finish – though it seems mainly of savoury, oaky elements.
2005 Long-Depaquit, Chablis Les BlanchotsApr. 2007
A nose of faint spice and deep, ripe, melon-infused fruit. The sweet palate is bathed in complex and rich fruit flavours. The texture is excellent – the overall impression being borderline rich, the acidity just about achieves sufficient balance. It’s an impressive effort.
2004 Long-Depaquit, Chablis Les BlanchotsMar. 2006
Super nose – more open and floral – perhaps still a little tight so not much width, but there is real depth here. Lovely texture – really fills the mouth with a wide impression – but will need some time in the cellar to build complexity as it’s a very linear and mineral expression, super length, super wine. This wine saw 20% (old) barrel fermentation, the aim is not to introduce oak flavour, rather to find an ‘extra dimension’.
