“The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir is completely matured in barrel. For me, this has a more convincing bouquet than the Blanchots with some gorgeous yellow flower, orange blossom and almost sweet marzipan-like aromas. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, detailed and precise, the minerality coming through towards the harmonious and pleasing finish. This represents a sterling follow-up to the fantastic 2014 Vaudesir.”

“Vanilla and lanolin notes frame peach, lemon cake and apple avors, bolstered by fresh acidity. Long, leaving a lemony impression on the finish. Drink now through 2023.”

“Moderate oak influence frames the ripe yet cool and vaguely exotic aromas that offer discreet Chablis typicity. The mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavours is even finer than that of the Blanchot, indeed it’s even lilting and this sense of refinement continues onto the classy, focused and lingering finish. If this can add more depth it should merit the upper end of my predicted range.”

“(This site was harvested on September 10 at 12.9% potential alcohol; the wine started in barrels and was racked into tank at the beginning of May): Ripe peach and spices on the nose. Fat, ripe and fruity, showing a thicker texture and more power than the Blanchots but not quite the clarity of that wine. A note of lichee and some faint alcoholic warmth give the wine a slight youthful harshness. This rather linear grand cru will need patience.”
