Reviews & Scores
There is a background touch of the exotic suffusing the ripe yet cool and pure white and yellow orchard fruit aromas that are laced with notes of various citrus elements and mineral reduction. The palate impression of energetic and almost delicate flavors is rich but wonderfully refined, all wrapped in delicious and impressively long finish where a hint of bitter lemon appears. This isn't especially dense, but it is certainly very pretty. Moreover, it appears to have the necessary stuffing to reward up to a decade of cellaring even though it should drink well before that.

The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru has a very appealing bouquet of lemon verbena, chai tea and crushed stone aromas, becoming increasingly floral with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and a slightly waxy texture. Lemon zest, orange peel and touches of spice and walnut appear toward the finish. Superb
VM95September 2020
Exhibiting aromas of fresh peach, Asian pears, apple blossom and orange oil, the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir is medium to full-bodied, satiny and charming, with an ample core of lively, perfumed fruit, succulent acids and a beautifully defined finish. This is an immensely expressive, giving Vaudésir. 
WA93July 2020
As I noted in the introduction, the grand crus chez Michel are all in the 13.5 percent range and were a bit more behind in their evolutions in the cellar at the time of my visit. The Vaudésir offers up lovely aromatic promise in its blend of pear, apple, a hint of tangerine, anise, chalky soil tones, straw and a floral topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and a touch riper and more tropical in personality than the Montée de Tonnerre, with good mineral undertow, bright acids and a long, vibrant and youthfully complex finish.
JG93December 2019
The domaine has two parcels of Vaudésir, both of which face north and are correspondingly cool. Picked late for a top 2018 because of its terroir, this is an elegant, focused white that's unadorned by oak, showing stony, citrus-fresh, chalky flavours and a classic mineral tang. An unusual expression of the Grand Cru.
