Waitrose's Anne Jones, this Pascal Bouchard Chablis Grand Cru is made from a parcel of mature Grand Cru vines from Pascal Bouchard’s own domaine. One of only seven Grand Cru sites in Chablis, Vaudésir produces wines of great finesse and complexity.
Golden in the glass, zesty citrus and oaky spice; complex, savoury baked apples, creamy toasted Brazil nuts and honeyed richness with sweet spice - fresh, precise, harmonious, really lovely.
Very Good Indeed - and will only improve with age; drinking it now is almost oenological infanticide. Decant before drinking or, to see it at its best, buy a case now, put it away for five years and then drink one bottle a year.
£29.99 from Waitrose; provided for review.
