TASTING NOTES

"The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir has a well-defined, vervain tea-tinged bouquet with fine mineralité, although it is more austere than I was anticipating given a vintage with decent focus. The palate is very well balanced with pretty orange zest and marmalade notes that render this Vaudésir quite tangy in the mouth. It appears to have improved in bottle, although I would like to see more complexity develop on the finish. As such, I would keep this in the cellar for another couple of years."

"Peach, apricot and floral aromas and flavors hold court in this expressive Chablis. Vibrant, leaving a mouthwatering impression. Fine length." Wine Spectator

"(13.2% alcohol): Pale, bright yellow. Deep, briny scents of apple, menthol, iodine and saline minerality. Round, nicely concentrated stone fruit flavors convey an almost sweet impression. Not hugely gripping; in fact, a bit blurry in the middle, finishing with dusty persistence and a touch of warmth that limits the wine's complexity. This very ripe wine, which was the only 2016 to have its malolactic fermentation partly blocked, struck me as more Chardonnay than Chablis but Faure-Brac believes it will age well."

"Intense nose. Very dry and savoury with a hint of thick skins and dryness on the finish but great concentration too. Already a hint of honey." JancisRobinson.com
