2018 Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir

$59.99
2018 Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir

John Gilman 93+ pts! 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. This is very good, but stylistically, I have a very slight preference (at least at the present time) for the Montée de Tonnerre and Butteaux “Vieilles Vignes” bottlings this year. (Drink between 2025-2065)

Vinous (Neil Martin) 93 pts! 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. (Drink between 2022-2036)

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 93 pts! 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.
