Albert Bichot Chablis Premier Cru Les Vaillons Domaine Long-Depaquit
Located on the left bank of the Serein River, just on the outskirts of Chablis, “Les Vaillons” offers a classic example of what the region has to offer. Nestled on the slopes of the Valvan valley, our plot lies at the heart of this famous Premier Cru vineyard, in “Les Epinottes”.
|Vinification||:||Handpicked, In stainless steel vats (90%) ; In 1 to 5-year-old oak barrels (10%)|
|Ageing||:||In oak barrels 10%, and final ageing in stainless steel vats (100%) - 10 months in oak barrels and vats ; Final ageing in stainless steel vats 12 months, on fine lees.|
|Tasting Notes||:||Very precise floral notes on the nose followed by subtle notes of oak and fresh fruit. Good structure on the palate. This wine is tangy, well balanced and already showing the lovely fullness one would expect from a Premier Cru. A combination of linden blossom and almond give way to a long, rounded finish.|
