Pedigreed Grand Cru Chablis for a Song

Domaine Long-Depaquit is one of the grand old estates of Chablis, founded in 1791 when the Depaquit family bought the vineyards of the Abbaye de Pontigny, as church properties were sold off at auction in the wake of the French Revolution.

Given the respect accorded the domaine today—and the estate’s wealth of great vineyards and very rich history—it may be hard to believe that until just a few years ago, Domaine Long-Depaquit wasn’t well known at all.

The turning point came in 2007, when current regisseur Matthieu Mangenot arrived. Though the estate had at that point been owned by Bichot for 37 years, it was left to Mangenot to realize its enormous potential, by making a far greater use of hand-harvesting and ambient yeasts, reducing fining and filtration, and increasing the amount of neutral barrels used for aging.

In our view, the wines really turned the corner with the 2012 vintage, and they went into overdrive in 2014. In fact, there were few greater wines made in Chablis in 2014 than Mangenot’s classically brilliant 2014 grands crus, Les Clos and Vaudésir.

It’s a pleasure to be able to offer these two great Grand Cru Chablis.
