Tasting Notes

Pale yellow. The nose has considerable weight, a little flesh but also some class. Some peaches too. This overt opulence however gives way to a more classic thread behind. There is a saline touch, which makes you salivate, while waiting for the weight of the fruit to impact. Long and tasty. Tasted: May 2019

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, May 2019

Pretty and demonstrative, among Fèvre's grand cru bottlings, the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir is second only to the Bougros in expressiveness. Bursting with aromas of pear, white flowers, orange oil and citrus blossom, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with a bright core of fruit and a precise, mineral finish.

The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir offers up an expressive bouquet of white flowers, citrus blossom and ripe apples, followed by a full-boded, ample and enveloping palate that's satiny, fragrant and charming; more tension and mineral qualities will typically emerge with further élevage and bottle age.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate (227), August 2019

The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru is a gorgeous, radiant wine that captures the essence of this warm, early ripening site. Sweet and racy with striking inner perfume, the 2018 has so much to offer. Passion fruit, mint, citrus and exotic floral notes are beautifully woven together in this super-expressive, inviting wine. Strong mineral character graces the exquisite finish.

A steely, lively white with sliced pears, apples and melon. Medium to full body, lovely fruit and a fruity finish. Reserved and fine. Drink now.
