Beautifully clear golden-green robe with very bright reflections. Nose is fleshy fruit (peach, nectarine) with discreet citrus and floral notes (jasmine, violet). Mouth is ample and generous with a very distinct marly minerality due to the micro-terroir. Immense freshness, light and supple woody hints with an exceptional persistence.

La Moutonne is a 6-acre vineyard nestled in a natural amphitheatre in the heart of the Grand Cru sector of the historical age-old Chablis wine country. Its shape and ideal spot make it a natural solar receptor. Sitting 95% on Vaudesir and 5% on Preuses (formerly owned by the Pontigny monks), La Moutonne is a Domaine Long-Depaquit monopoly. With a South-southeast exposure, its pronounced central slope (almost 40%) protects this vineyard from north winds. It is also located on a major geological stratus from the second era known as kimmeridgian, with a clay and limestone soil. This particular stratus is characterized by the presence of marly limestone containing fossils of a small comma-shaped oyster (Ostrea Virgula). These soils are soft and crumbly with a rather pale colour. Great care is taken to deal with winter freezing in this vineyard, in the most durable way from an ecological aspect. An installation of heated electric wires allows the prevention of spring frost in an innovative and environmentally-friendly manner. As throughout the Long-Depaquit Estate, cultivation of the vine here respects the environment.
Food pairing
”La Moutonne” Grand Cru will perfectly accompany the noblest fish or shellfish, lightly fried in the frying pan or with a creamed sauce. If drunk when aged, this Grand Cru will wonderfully suit a farm chicken in a cream-based sauce. Serving and keeping Serve between 10 and 12C (50F - 53F). Laying: Preferably lie for several years to attain its peak. Exceptional for keeping.
