It was the monks of the Cistercian Abbey of Pontigny who first began growing vines in the Chablis region, which is located in Northern Burgundy not far from the village of Auxerre. This tradition continues today at family-run winery Domaine Long-Depaquit. Here they have created this Chablis in a fresh, easy drinking style showing white flower and crisp apple notes with a flinty minerality. Perfect for drinking now or for laying down to see how it develops.

The Producer

The Bichot family settled in the Chateau of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois, Burgundy in 1350. The family’s coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe, or biche in French. Their wine heritage started in 1831 with Bernard who was a wine trader. It was his son, Hippolyte, who brought the first vines in Volnay and grandson, Albert, who rooted the Bichot name in Beaune from which the family business escalated. Since 1996 Bichot has been under Albéric Bichot who is completely focused on developing the future of the company without compromising family tradition or quality.

The Winemaker

In 2007, Matthieu Mangenot joined Albert Bichot as manager of the Domaine Long-Depaquit estate in Chablis after gaining a wealth of vineyard and production experience at different wine estates in South Africa, Lebanon and Bordeaux. Through in-depth work in the vineyards, helped by his vineyard manager, Olivier Deboudt, he puts the high quality grapes at the heart of his strategy. His wines showcasing the various terroirs of the vineyards and he supports a non-interventionist approach at the winery.

The Region

Château Long-Depaquit is located at the heart of the village of Chablis, in Burgundy’s Yonne department. The winery was rebuilt in 2014 and has an exceptional 65-hectare legacy, the vineyards benefit from a sustainable approach to viticulture. Yields are limited and interventions kept to a minimum during winemaking. Barrel ageing is used in moderation to best preserve the expression of each terroir.

Crab Cakes

The delicate crab meat calls for a smooth, fruity, floral white which doesn't overpower the meat and will naturally complement seafood dishes.

Chicken & Lentil Salad

The earthy flavours of lentils pair well with both medium-bodied reds and whites, while the addition of chicken suggests a richer style of white - Burgundy is a classic pairing

Scallops with Shallots & White Wine

This delicate, textured dish needs just a twist of citrussy freshness to contrast with the sweet scallop meat. Seafood-friendly whites such as Picpoul, Albarino or Vermentino are particularly good matches.
