2009 Long-Depaquit, Chablis VaucoupinMar. 2011
Very nice aromas with hints of the sea. More lithe and fleet of foot vs. the 07 Vaillons. Lovely finishing acidity and flavour – an excellent finish!
2008 Long-Depaquit, Chablis VaucoupinMar. 2011
Aromas of riper (lemon) fruit. After the 09 very narrow and mineral yet the texture is cushioned and the flavours penetrating. Slowly intensifying acidity – very good finish too.
2007 Long-Depaquit, Chablis VaucoupinMar. 2011
A hint of perfume. The flavours are more chalky and less precise. The mid-palate flavour is again just a little evolved. Very long finishing, but I’d say drink-up!
2008 Moreau J. et Fils, Chablis VaucoupinApr. 2010
Intense, sweet, slightly dark fruit. Super minerality and broad, well-defined acidity – A very nice star
2007 Long-Depaquit, Chablis VaucoupinApr. 2009
More focused fruit of some depth on the nose. In the mouth it’s faintly riper than the Vaillons and again shows the lovely acidity. Super length and minerality again.
2006 Long-Depaquit, Chablis VaucoupinApr. 2008
Faint brioche fades to leave denser fruit. More intense at its core and coupled to fizzing acidity, lovely extension and finish. A little more mineral and super.
2005 Long-Depaquit, Chablis VaucoupinApr. 2007
This right-bank cuvée has a lovely, more mineral nose with accents of citrus fruit. The palate seems similarly concentrated to the Vaillons but everything is delivered in a much more mineral fashion. Philippe quotes “as Vaillons starts to die Vaucoupins starts to wake”. This is my style of Chablis, it is mineral, it is understatedly intense and has lovely acidity breaking across the palate into the finish. Excellent!
2004 Long-Depaquit, Chablis VaucoupinMar. 2006
Pale to medium yellow. The nose is not so ‘solid’ as the Vaillons, still tight but more open and higher toned. A wide palate with lovely acidity – it seems much more mineral and precise than the Vaillons which is the more opulent. Very different presentation, I personally prefer this style.
2000 Brocard Jean-Marc, Chablis VaucoupinMar. 2004
Lemon yellow in colour. This wine shows a nice depth of fruit on the nose. The palate is more reserved, but also smoother and more elegant than the ’98 Fevre ‘Le Clos’, doesn’t show the same level of concentration though. Nice acidity, pretty and satisfying.
