Toasty, nutty richness lays itself like a warming blanket over this wine’s nose, but underneath some ripe, lemon-edged stonefruit peeps through promisingly. The palate is still dominated by that toasty sheen, but it is only a question of time before the vivid, concentrated fruit integrates this, making the wine more of a unit. It has rich texture, lovely depth, generous fruit and ripe freshness. (AK)
The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru has a lovely bouquet of yellow plum, grapefruit, green apple and sea spray, all beautifully defined. The palate is well balanced with a very composed entry. This is a harmonious and seductive Vaudésir with just the right amount of spice on the finish. One of the best from Billaud-Simon this year and thoroughly recommended.
Initially this was noticeably reduced yet cleaned up relatively quickly to reveal an elegant nose with its aromas of white fruit compote, lemon zest, spice and a whiff of sea breeze. The supple and refined flavors are on the lighter side though this is not to say dilute while delivering fine length on the racy and attractively dry if somewhat awkward finale that also reflects evident wood influence. This will probably come together, and my score offers the benefit of the doubt.
Satiny and charming, the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir wafts from the glass with notes of peach, citrus oil and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegantly textural, it's bright and lively, with a nicely defined finish. (WK)
