CHABLIS GRAND CRU, Vaudésir

Chardonnay 100%

Located between Valmur and Preuses, next to Grenouilles, the grand cru Vaudésir spreads over almost 15 hectares . Vaudesir is characterized by a more sloping land, a less calcareous and a bit lighter soil than the other grands crus. The vinification and ageing are carried on as for the Bougros. Round, fat and seducing, Vaudesir has also a great fineness.

(Allen Meadows 90-93) 2019 Chablis–Vaudésir: Relatively generous wood stops short of dominating the ripe and exotic aromas of dried yellow fruit, mineral reduction and passion fruit. The equally refined and nicely detailed middle weight flavors flash evident minerality on the pear and apple-infused finish that is at once refreshingly saline and slightly warm. (90-93)/2026+

(Decanter 92) Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir 2019 A powerful, toasty, warm and spicy rendition of Vaudésir Grand Cru. There is still very good acidity underneath and this is likely to develop, with several years in bottle, into a refined and complex Grand Cru. Drinking window 2023-2032
