Pure expressive aromas of ripe yellow fruits spices hazelnut and honey. A step up in texture over the foregoing 2008s offering fat sweet flavors of stone fruits and spices with a biscuity nuance. Nicely enrobed oak element here. Finishes broad sweet and long. This can be enjoyed now but should show deeper apricot quince and honeyed notes with a few years of additional bottle aging.

The Long-Depaquit 2008 Chablis Vaucopin - 15-20% of which was rendered in barrel - was pungently herbal in aroma; saline; and overall rather reduced in cast but with airing offers a whole lot of appeal. Red currant and cherry with the bitterness and tartness of their pits and seeds mingle with citrus herbs and peat-like smokiness in a manner that calls to my mind Ruwer Riesling. Firm in feel - indeed palpably dense - yet refreshing this finishes with a long fine interplay of herb tart fruit and stone. Expect it to be well worth following over the coming 4-6 years.
