Fine Wine

Turner Harris oversees our wine department where we work with 5 state wide wine distributors to choose wines that can be served every day of the week.  Our specialty is Tuesday night “spaghetti wine.”  In other words, we strive to find wines that can fit into the everyday budget with everyday meals.  We, of course, have some hard to find vintages from around the world, but our main focus is good wine for every day and for every season.

Domaine Long-Depaquit

WINE MAKERS NOTES

“Les Vaucopins” is a Premier Cru that is quite unique within the wide range of the Long-Depaquit estate’s wines. Located on the right bank of the Serein River, this vineyard is in the commune of Chichée, 3 kilometers east of Chablis. Its terroir has an uncanny resemblance to the Grand Crus: southern exposure, steep slopes, and numerous Kimmeridgian outcrops. Consequently, the subsoil lends these wines a very specific personality. With its noble origin and often warmer than average conditions for this terroir, this high-end Premier Cru has definite promise and potential.

TASTING
This wine features an expressive, rather powerful nose that is predominantly mineral. Milk caramel notes combine with elegant, refined nuances of oak. A hint of sucrosity on the palate with flavors of candied fruit, apricot, and quince. This beautiful, full-bodied wine finishes on a generous, slightly acidic note.

FOOD/WINE PAIRING
The varied and sustained aromatic pallet of this great wine allows a double vocation. As an aperitif or for a convivial meal. It will pair well with seafood, scallops, fish and white meats.

SERVING AND KEEPING
Serve between 11 and 13°C (52°F – 55°F).
May be enjoyed now or laid down for between 5 and 10 years.
