The 2012 Chablis Grand Cru Moutonne comes from 2.35 hectares of 43-year-old vine and is raised 25% in wooden barrel and 75% in stainless steel for 9 months. It has a complex nose, very vibrant and almost fiery, with fresh ginger, beeswax and honeysuckle aromas bounding from the glass. The palate is very well-balanced with a viscous entry, good acidity and poise. There is great depth here, but it is tightly wound and introspective on the finish. I suggest four or five years in bottle before reaching for the waiter’s friend. Drink 2018-2028. ||Readers may remember my waxing lyrical about the 2011s from Chateau Long-Depaquit last year, after I encountered the wines at an Albert Bichot tasting chez Vinexpo. This estate was founded back in 1791 after the French Revolution. Previously La Moutonne itself had belonged to the monks of Pontigny and included 1.1 hectares in Vaudesir. The current La Moutonne comes from those vines augmented by others located in Les Preuses but despite this, the INAO still do not recognize it has an official grand cru. Status aside, I found much to enjoy here, a testament to the winemaking skills of Alain Serveau and his team. Wine Advocate.August, 2014
