Chablis Grand Cru "Vaudésir"

Les Exceptionnels / Chablis Grand Cru "Vaudésir"

«Whoever knows how to taste wine never again drinks it, but discovers its secrets». Salvador Dalí

It is strict and careful work with the vines, exemplary, meticulous ageing of the wines and remarkable care and know-how that mean that unique terroirs can produce «les exceptionnels», exceptional wines. This range is a selection of Grands Crus with respect for their unique value.

  • Terroir

    Appellation: Chablis produces exclusively fresh, pure white wines with mineral and iodine notes. The Chablis Grand Cru appellation includes 7 climates located on the right bank of the Serein River.

    Did you know ?
    Existing since 1429, the current «Vaudésir» climate takes its name from the Vau Daisey vine, also spelled «Valdaisay». In Old French, «Hait» refers to a desire. Thus «Vau des haits» became «Vaudésir» in 1770, the Valley of Desires.

    Soil: Grey marls alternating with limestone banks sometimes very rich in fossils.

  • Varietals

    100% Chardonnay

  • Vinification

    Harvest: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.

    Vinification: The grapes are destalked and placed in vats to be vinified.

    Ageing: The wine is then aged in oak barrels (25% new barrels) for a period of 8 to 12 months.

  • Tasting notes

    A golden yellow colour with slightly golden silvery reflections.
    The nose is expressive, with peach, fresh plum, a few aniseed notes and mineral nuances such as wet stone.
    On the palate, a magnificent precise freshness, straight, with a beautiful finesse, accompanied by a delicate volume. A salivating finish with iodine notes that accompany this very long finish.

  • Food pairing

    A lobster with a delicate iodine taste accompanied by an absinthe and blackcurrant broth to complete the complex aromatic palette. Or a Saint-Pierre just seared with a vervain broth slightly lemony.

  • Aeging and Service Temperature

    Service temperature: between 10°C and 12°C

    Ageing potential: 8 to 10 years
