Vaudesir is a 31.8-acre Grand Cru vineyard in Chablis, in northwestern Burgundy. Most of it is high on a slope and faces south. It includes the very small vineyard of La Moutonne, which is 5.8 acres. 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.
This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
