WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, June 2010
A rich powerful style with the lemon honey and flint aromas and flavors characteristic of the best sites. Fresh and beautifully balanced with a long savory aftertaste of lemon cake. Drink now through 2025. 180 cases imported.

A background nuance of wood frames airy and cool aromas that are ripe and largely floral in character but with nuances of sea breeze iodine and quinine that complement well the intense minerality of the strikingly intense and delineated medium full flavors that possess impressive depth and length on the notably dry and tangy finish. There is good volume and mid-palate fat that prevents this from being overly austere.

Melon and lime in the nose of Long-Depaquit 2007 Chablis Blanchots lead to a luscious silken-textured but bright palate brimming with ripe peach and musk melon accented by lemon pip peach kernel sizzling white pepper and citrus zest. The alternation of cool juicy fruit and caressing texture with pungency and subtle bitterness makes for a fascinating dynamic; and a sappy persistency of citrus and pit fruits mingles with subtly bitter musky and saline sweaty notes in the finish. This should be worth following for at least 5-7 years.Long-Depaquit director Matthieu Mangenot - like a number of Chablis growers - began picking September 6; took a few days pause soon thereafter; and finished around mid-month. Given the higher acid levels he elected to slightly more actively work those lees that were retained one of several instances I noted in Chablis this vintage that countered a general trend in recent years toward lees passivity in Burgundy.

($74) Peach nectarine and nutmeg on the nose; the first one of these 2007s to show its oak component. Big rich and sweet in the mouth with terrific intensity and persistence to its silky peach and fresh apricot flavors... ($74) Peach nectarine and nutmeg on the nose; the first one of these 2007s to show its oak component. Big rich and sweet in the mouth with terrific intensity and persistence to its silky peach and fresh apricot flavors. Very round and harmonious wine.
