Wine Enthusiast, October 2021

This wine offers ripe yellow fruit and light spice flavors. Juiciness comes with the citrus tang, allied to a touch of toast and final tight, textured aftertaste. Age the wine more and drink from 2022. — Roger Voss

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2021

(90+ points) Another success is the 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaudevey, a medium to full-bodied, layered and complete wine evocative of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, fresh bread and oyster shell. Satiny and tensile...

Vinous, October 2021

The 2019 Chablis Les Vaudevey 1er Cru has a pretty nose of tinned white peaches mixed with vanilla pod, showing fine delineation and focus, though not complex. The citrus-fresh palate is vibrant with good acidity, showing...

Wine & Spirits, October 2021

You might not be satisfied if you open and drink this wine now, as all you may get are flavors of underripe peach, orange pith and acidity. Wait a day and the length of the wine fills out, turning lemony and graceful...

The 2019 Domaine Laroche Chablis les Vaudevey is a Chardonnay from the Chablis region in Burgundy, France. This white wine, produced by Domaine Laroche, has an alcohol content of 12.5% and is sealed with a cork closure.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it 90 points, describing it as a "medium to full-bodied, layered and complete wine evocative of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, fresh bread and oyster shell." The reviewer, WK, noted its "satiny and tensile" nature, suggesting it will benefit from some bottle aging.

Vinous also gave it a 90-point rating. Neal Martin highlighted its "pretty nose of tinned white peaches mixed with vanilla pod," and praised its "fine delineation and focus." He described the palate as "citrus-fresh" with "good acidity," featuring "subtle peach and pear notes toward the minerally finish." Martin concluded that this wine "has a bit of a skip in its step."

Wine & Spirits echoed the 90-point score, advising patience with this wine. The publication cautioned that drinking it immediately might yield flavors of "underripe peach, orange pith, and acidity." However, given a day or several years in the cellar, it "fills out, turning lemony and graceful."

Wine Spectator also rated it at 90 points, calling it a "refreshing, lemon-flavored white," accented by "green apple and honeysuckle." The review noted its balance and vibrancy, with a "mouthwatering finish," recommending consumption from now through 2024. The production was reported at 1,750 cases, with 175 cases imported.

Wine Enthusiast provided the highest score at 92 points. Reviewer Roger Voss described it as offering "ripe yellow fruit and light spice flavors." He noted its "juiciness" paired with a "citrus tang," and a "touch of toast and final tight, textured aftertaste." Voss suggested aging the wine further and drinking it from 2022.

Overall, the 2019 Domaine Laroche Chablis les Vaudevey is a highly regarded Chardonnay with a consistent rating of around 90 points from multiple reviewers, indicating its quality and potential for aging.
