Domaine Long-Depaquit, Chablis Les Vaucopins 1er Cru 2014
This premier cru site on a southern exposure could easily compete against many of the grand crus. The nose opens up to white peach and perfectly ripe apricot with a touch of butter from the oak. The palate is crisp, with citrus characters combined with a creamy texture. While it is drinking well now, it has a solid potential to age much longer.

Adjacent to Mont de Milieu on the right bank of the Serein river, this has great drive and focus. Typical shellfish notes evolve over time, allied to a taut, steely finish.
