"The 2010 Chablis is a pretty, soft wine with lovely balance. Dried pears, apricots and spices all come together nicely on the round finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.

These 2010s from Long-Depaquit are attractive and well made, but they lack the excitement and visceral thrill that defines the vintage. The wines are also very similar to each other, with little differentiation of site, a shame considering the notion of terroir is the most fundamental concept in Burgundy." (WA)

"Stone, menthol and a whiff of petrol on the slightly medicinal nose; very Chablis. Then surprisingly fat and rich in the mouth, but with a strong impression of stony austerity for such a big village wine. Plenty of palate presence here." (IWC)

"An interesting nose contrasts notes of grapefruit and melon while sprinkling hints of sea breeze around the edges. The rich, round and obviously concentrated middle weight flavors possess a racy finish and fine length. This relatively opulent effort evidences a strong saline character if limited depth at present." (BH)

Winery Notes:
Tasting notes
Beautiful greenish-gold in colour. Fresh and elegant on the nose with lemony and mineral nuances. Lovely overall harmony with remarkable power and length.

Food/wine pairing
This Chablis calls for classic matches. Enjoy its refreshing character as an aperitif served alongside smoked salmon on toast. Its richness is complemented by firm oysters with a slight nuttiness

Serving and cellaring
Serve between 9° and 11°C to preserve this wine's freshness and minerality. A pleasure wine best enjoyed within the next 3 to 5 years.
