Picked late for a top 2018 because of its terroir, this is an elegant, focused white that's unadorned by oak, showing stony, citrus-fresh, chalky flavours and a classic mineral tang. An unusual expression of the Grand Cru.

This is an immensely expressive, giving Vaudésir.- WK

The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and a slightly waxy texture. Lemon zest, orange peel and touches of spice and walnut appear toward the finish. Superb. -- Neal Martin

The Vaudésir offers up lovely aromatic promise in its blend of pear, apple, a hint of tangerine, anise, chalky soil tones, straw and a floral topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and a touch riper and more tropical in personality than the Montée de Tonnerre, with good mineral undertow, bright acids and a long, vibrant and youthfully complex finish. This is very good, but stylistically, I have a very slight preference (at least at the present time) for the Montée de Tonnerre and Butteaux “Vieilles Vignes” bottlings this year.

Fine yellow fruit here, then the limestone behind, less spice than in ‘19, and less excitement on the palate, but there is still concentration and, some length.
