Fresh, elegant aromas of flowers and fruit. On the palate, it is distinguished from other Grands Crus by its own particular subtlety: a delicious blend of softness and liveliness. Light yet rounded, it shows great charm from a very early age.
Vinous 92 points - Voluptuous and sexy, the 2011 Chablis Vaudesir bursts onto the palate with waves of rich, expansive fruit. Almond, orange zest and mint all come to life in this fairly large-scaled, intense wine. Rich, creamy and generous, the 2011 is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. The fleshy, broad-shouldered style is pure 2011.
Wine Advocate 93 points - A surprisingly sweetly-suggestive, high-toned nose of pineapple, orange rind and nutmeg wafted by ocean breeze greets one from the glass of Fevre 2011 Chablis Vaudesir. It offers a lusciously juicy, sweetly-citric palate impression mouthwateringly mingled with clam stock and transparent to nuances of spices, toasted nuts, salt and stone. Soothing and elegant, clear, delicate and refined, this really grows on me as it opens up in the glass. Im tempted to suggest drinking this by 2018 even if it will “live longer, and, frankly, it is so expressive now that one should not under any circumstances forego its immediate company.”,,, (Aug 2013)
Set in the very heart of the Grand Cru area, Vaudesir has a subtle diversity in exposure. Its steep terrain contains more clay than limestone and produces wines of great finesse and elegance.
