Aged partly in new oak, 'Vaudésir' is a powerful, profound and age-worthy Grand Cru Chablis. Golden in colour with aromas of honey and red fruits, complimenting textbook citrus and oyster-shell minerality. Ample, generous and long with intense aromas.

Set between Preuses and Grenouilles, the Vaudésir climat is divided into two parts by the track called “le chemin des Vaudésirs”. It has a double orientation, as roughly half of its vines face due south, whilst the remainder face south-west.

Very steep in places, its soil type seems rather lighter than most, and contains less lime. This increasing “earthiness” tends to mark the wines, which can be drunk young if one is looking for crispness. The full structure of the wines will take several years to develop however, as with all the Grands Crus. Their extreme delicacy has given Vaudésir the reputation of being the most feminine of all the climats.

Gérard Tremblay and his wife, Hélène, oversee a domain that they inherited in a line of five generations, but which they have mostly built themselves. With 80 acres of vines under production, most of them in the best Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations, their list of Chablis is among the most prestigious in the region. Tremblay is known locally as an accomplished wine maker. He is justly famous for his ability to draw out the typicity of distinct appellations, underlining the terroir of his vines vintage after vintage.
