The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru is a gorgeous, radiant wine that captures the essence of this warm, early ripening site. Sweet and racy with striking inner perfume, the 2018 has so much to offer. Passion fruit, mint, citrus and exotic floral notes are beautifully woven together in this super-expressive, inviting wine. Strong mineral character graces the exquisite finish. (AG)
The 2018 Vaudésir from Didier Séguier is also outstanding, with its ripe and pure fruit coupled to outstanding mineral drive and a firm structure. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a primary blend of pear, lime, apple, chalky soil tones, dried flowers and a topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and youthful in structure, with excellent depth at the core, snappy acids and fine precision on the very long and well-balanced finish. This will need a year or two longer in the cellar than the Bougros to start to really drink well, but it should still provide relatively early appeal.
An exuberantly fresh and cool and mildly exotic nose offers up unmistakable Chablis character that includes sea breeze, iodine and oyster shell along with an abundance of citrus elements. There is equally good freshness and verve to the utterly delicious, crisp and delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess fine persistence and a lovely minerality on the notably dry but not austere finale where the wood resurfaces. This almost delicate effort will need a year or so to digest the oak treatment but this too is very promising.
The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir offers up an expressive bouquet of white flowers, citrus blossom and ripe apples, followed by a full-boded, ample and enveloping palate that's satiny, fragrant and charming; more tension and mineral qualities will typically emerge with further élevage and bottle age.
