2018 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Vaudésir" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1474644 93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru is a gorgeous, radiant wine that captures the essence of this warm, early ripening site. Sweet and racy with striking inner perfume, the 2018 has so much to offer. Passion fruit, mint, citrus and exotic floral notes are beautifully woven together in this super-expressive, inviting wine. Strong mineral character graces the exquisite finish. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Vaudésir from Didier Séguier is also outstanding, with its ripe and pure fruit coupled to outstanding mineral drive and a firm structure. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a primary blend of pear, lime, apple, chalky soil tones, dried flowers and a topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and youthful in structure, with excellent depth at the core, snappy acids and fine precision on the very long and well-balanced finish. This will need a year or two longer in the cellar than the Bougros to start to really drink well, but it should still provide relatively early appeal. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An exuberantly fresh and cool and mildly exotic nose offers up unmistakable Chablis character that includes sea breeze, iodine and oyster shell along with an abundance of citrus elements. There is equally good freshness and verve to the utterly delicious, crisp and delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess fine persistence and a lovely minerality on the notably dry but not austere finale where the wood resurfaces. This almost delicate effort will need a year or so to digest the oak treatment but this too is very promising. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir offers up an expressive bouquet of white flowers, citrus blossom and ripe apples, followed by a full-boded, ample and enveloping palate that's satiny, fragrant and charming; more tension and mineral qualities will typically emerge with further élevage and bottle age.

K&L Notes

93-95 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Pale yellow. The nose has considerable weight, a little flesh but also some class. Some peaches too. This overt opulence however gives way to a more classic thread behind. There is a saline touch, which makes you salivate, while waiting for the weight of the fruit to impact. Long and tasty." 93 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru has an open, slightly menthol-tinged bouquet that is quite seductive; subtle orange pith and peachy aromas develop with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with more overt tropical notes compared to the more sophisticated Bougros, but you cannot fail to enjoy the ginger and lemongrass tang on the finish. A lovely Vaudésir that should age well over the next 10–12 years." (9/2020)
