From vines on the sunny side of the vineyard, this wine is richly textured and structured, full of generous yellow and white fruits, spice and layers of wood aging. It has a honeyed character, typical of 2013, with a tight, taut, crisp acidity at the end. Drink this strongly structured wine from 2019.

(ST90-93 points) (picked at the beginning of the harvest; from a steep, warm, south-facing site; the crop level was under 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Seguier): Pale yellow. Exotic ripe fruits, ginger, lichee and menthol on the nose. Fat, rich and sweet, with slightly exotic flavors of pineapple and lichee framed by ripe acidity. The finishing grip comes almost as a surprise in this very rich wine. "Vaudesir is always masked by fruit in the early going," notes Seguier. "It only reveals its minerality with about five years of bottle aging."

(AG90-92 points) One of the richer, more textured wines in this range, the 2013 Chablis Vaudesir shows the typical radiance of this warm micro-climate in its intense color and layered, voluptuous personality. Already relatively approachable, the 2013 should drink well pretty right out of the gate. Didier Seguir adds that this well-exposed, steep parcel on pure Kimmeridgian limestone is usually the first to be picked.

A very ripe and slightly exotic nose offers up notes of various dried yellow fruit scents together with hints of iodine and algae that are trimmed in enough wood to notice.

A very ripe and slightly exotic nose offers up notes of various dried yellow fruit scents together with hints of iodine and algae that are trimmed in enough wood to notice. There is impressively good concentration to the very rich, round and opulent flavors that are underpinned by both good minerality and firm acidity on the saline and dry but not austere finish. I very much like the balance here and in particular the fine persistence.

The 2013 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir has an outgoing bouquet with dried apricot, quince and beeswax nose, nicely defined, but not as sophisticated as the superior 2014.

The 2013 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir has an outgoing bouquet with dried apricot, quince and beeswax nose, nicely defined, but not as sophisticated as the superior 2014. The palate is fresh in the mouth with fresh pear and nettle notes, good acidity, but missing just a little complexity toward the agreeably saline finish. Drink this before the succeeding vintage. - Neal Martin
