The 2004 Chablis Grand Cru Moutonne has a pungent nose of grass clippings, gooseberry, flint and nettle – dare I say, almost akin to a Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire! The palate sports an herbaceous entry, quite smoky with a vegetal edge, again erring towards Sauvignon Blanc, with a touch of bell pepper on the finish. Interesting, but personally I prefer the younger vintages such as the 2009 and 2010. Drink now. ||I spent a morning at Vinexpo attending a mini-vertical of Chablis Moutonne, a monopole of Domaine Long-Depaquit owned by Maison Albert Bichot. It is not an officially recognized Grand Cru since the family never registered the name. Duh! It is actually located 95% in Vaudesir and 5% in Preuses, though the domaine has permission to use the “Moutonne” name on the label. It is a small, south-southeast facing amphitheater on kimmeridgian soils and 25% of the crop is vinified in oak barrels and matured in used oak, up to five years old. eRobertParker.com.August, 2013
