With perhaps one of the most evocative name of all the Grand Crus, Vaudésir has the reputation of being the fleshiest of his grand cru sites. But banish any thought of fat for this is still Chablis from one of the top sites in the appellation which means power, tension and poise. Benoîts farms 1 hectare of vines in Vaudésir that benefit from being planted at the top of the hill so they enjoy both a full southern as well as a northern exposure. This results in a wine that is both rich and ethereal, perfumed and elegant. It is aged, part in tank and part in barrel with a small proportion new wood.
