This Chablis’ crystalline limpidity and its pale yellow colour with light green highlights tell a great deal about its character which is bursting with mineral precision and finesse. Very pure nose that is typical of Chablis (white flowers, flint) opens up to a palate that boasts an elegant combination of almond notes and lovely vivacity.
In northern Burgundy, not far from Auxerre, the Chablis appellation covers an approximately fifteen-kilometre radius around the village of the same name. It was the monks of the Cistercian abbey of Pontigny who began growing vines in the region. Chablis is located on the south-eastern extremity of the Paris Basin. The soil is composed of clay-limestone marls that are only found here. They date back to the Kimmeridgian geological stage of the Upper Jurassic Epoch. The grapes used to craft this Chablis at the Domaine Long-Depaquit estate come from a mosaic of terroirs which lends remarkable complexity to the wine.
|This Chablis is best matched with classic dishes. Enjoy its refreshing notes as an aperitif served with smoked salmon on toast. During the meal, discover this wine’s generosity by pairing it with raw, firm-fleshed oysters.
