Background
“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.
Tasting Notes
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.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Serve between 10 and 12°C (50°F - 53°F). This exceptional Grand Cru may be cellared for approximately 15 years.
Food Matches
"La Moutonne" Grand Cru is the perfect match for the noblest fish or shellfish, lightly pan-fried or in a cream sauce. If enjoyed when aged, this Grand Cru is a fine accompaniment for farm-raised chicken in cream sauce.
