RATINGS

91+ Stephen Tanzer

F pear and hazelnut, plus a whiff of nut skin....flavors of menthol, minerals and slightly bitter peach pit. The back end is a tad warm and phenolic, with the peach pit and dusty stone qualities giving the finish a tannic impression

Robert M. Parker has noted that Vaudesir wines are admired for their "precision of flavors and clarity." The largest landholders are Long-Depaquit, with 6.5 acres; Besson, with 3.58 acres; and Drouhin, with 3.5 acres. Like all the Chablis vineyards, it is planted exclusively to Chardonnay.
