Vaudesir is one of the largest amongst the seven Grand Cru’s of Chablis, with it’s famous amphitheatre like shape; rounded with steep south-facing slopes. Grapes are hand-harvested and gently pressed, with the wine being matured for 12 months in French oak (0% new). The result is a wine of com of fantastic complexity and elegance, whilst also showcasing the distinct minerality of Chablis. Complex green apples, citrus and exotic stone fruits are all present, balanced alongside a rich almond and honeysuckle richness. A terrific Grand Cru Chablis from Maison Drouhin.
“An exquisite wine often drunk on its own as an aperitif. Pure and limpid colour, with a faint greenish hint. On the nose, fresh aromas of flower and fruit (lemony flavours) and, at times, spicy notes of coriander. On the palate: harmonious aromas bringing character and elegance. The magnitude of its Grand Cru origin and the light salty notes from the Kimmeridgian soil are in evidence. Remarkably long and complex persistence in the aftertaste”. Véronique Boss-Drouhin, Maison Drouhin
