"Les Vaucopins" is a Premier Cru that is quite unique within the wide range of the Long-Depaquit estate’s wines. Located on the right bank of the Serein River, this vineyard is in the commune of Chichée, 3 kilometres east of Chablis. Its terroir has an uncanny resemblance to the Grand Crus: southern exposure, steep slopes and numerous Kimmeridgian outcrops. Consequently, the subsoil lends these wines a very specific personality. With its noble origin and often warmer than average conditions for this terroir, this high-end Premier Cru has definite promise and potential.

Tasting

This wine features an expressive, rather powerful nose that is predominantly mineral. Milk caramel notes combine with elegant, refined nuances of oak. A hint of sucrosity on the palate with flavours of candied fruit, apricot, and quince. This beautiful, full-bodied wine finishes on a generous, slightly acidic note.

Food/wine pairing

The varied and sustained aromatic pallet of this great wine allows a double vocation. As an aperitif or for a convivial meal. It will pair well with seafood, scallops, fish and white meats.

Serve between 11 and 13°C (52°F - 55°F).
May be enjoyed now or laid down for between 5 and 10 years.
