Albert Bichot Chablis Grand Cru ” Moutonne” – Monopole

FacebookTwitterGoogle+

A complex year, but an exceptional vintage for the whites!

The hot, dry summer weather was most beneficial for the vines. The winter was mild and the spring was dry. Volumes were good, despite violent hailstorms in June; some of the Côte de Beaune’s appellations were particularly hard hit. Overall the health of the vines was very good.

“La Moutonne” is a vineyard nestled in a natural amphitheatre at the heart of the Grand Cru sector of the historic age-old Chablis wine country. Its shape and ideal location make it a natural solar receptor. Sitting 95% in “Vaudésir” and 5% in “Les Preuses” (formerly owned by the Pontigny monks), “La Moutonne” is a monopole meaning Domaine Long-Depaquit is the sole owner. With its south/south-eastern exposure and a steep slope of almost 40%, this vineyard is protected from north winds.

Region:Burgundy, France
Vintage:2014
Grape:Chardonnay
Alcohol:13%
Tasting Note:The nose is evocative of fleshy fruit (peach, nectarine) with discreet citrus and floral notes (jasmine, violet). Full-bodied and generous on the palate with very distinct marly minerality due to the micro-terroir. Immensely fresh, light, and supple with hints of oak and exceptional length.
