Formerly owned by the monks of the Pontigny Abbey, Monopole du Domaine Long-Depaquit "Moutonne" is a plot that is sheltered within a natural amphitheatre at the heart of the Grand Crus, the historic part of the Chablis vineyards that dates back over one thousand years.
Located in both "Vaudésir" (95%) and "Preuses" (5%), this south/south-east facing plot with its ideal location and shape enable it to capture all of the sun's rays. The steep slope (nearly 40%) in the central part of the plot protects the vines from the North winds.

Complex nose that combines notes of white and yellow-fleshed fruit, citrus, and delicate flower scents. The palate is full and generous, marked by the minerality due to the marls found in this micro-terroir. This wine features pleasing freshness, a slight hint of well-integrated oak and exceptional length on the palate.

Terroir

Most of the hard work it takes to produce quality wine happens in the vinyard. The soil, the climatic conditions, the aspect, the bodies of water and many more factors, collectively knwon as "terroir" can influence the flavour of wine and give wine distint minerality, depth and character.
