Vaudésir is one of the seven official climats of the Chablis Grand Cru appellation, on steep slopes overlooking the town of Chablis below. Vaudésir Chablis’ tend to be softer and more elegant than other Grand Crus, with floral characters rounding out Chablis’ iconic minerality, and the wines are renowned for their wonderful balance. Bruised apple and white peach on the nose. The palate is citrusy with a hint of the tropical and a wash of minerality.

The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru has a pleasant nose of yellow plum and hints of brioche and almond, but missing the mineralité one seeks in a Chablis. The palate is well balanced with a honeyed opening. Notes of mango and pineapple render the finish almost Chassagne-like. A decent Chardonnay, but do not expect the mineralité of a top Chablis.
