The 2019 Chablis Les Vaudevey 1er Cru has a pretty nose of tinned white peaches mixed with vanilla pod, showing fine delineation and focus, though not complex. The citrus-fresh palate is vibrant with good acidity, showing subtle peach and pear notes toward the minerally finish. This has a bit of a skip in its step. (Neal Martin, Vinous, October 2021)

Stone, pear, white flowers. Big mouth feel yet high acidity. Spun gold straw.

Interesting how this is coming along. Honeyed character, ripe pear, acidity and grip is loosening on the palate, quite even keeled, elegant, and distinctive.

Good classy style. Stony, chalky, white flowers, lillies, lemon peel, and some sweet fruit, white peach and sweeter Apple. Lovely palate, nervy, vibrant with a light texture, somewhat reminiscent of a village Puligny, but slightly lighter. Good length, and distinct mineral note.

Just opening up, good saline and chalky breed. Good mix of stone fruit and green notes, some leesy notes. Lightly kernel. Good mouthfeel, medium body, textured, creamy, but good acidity behind it. Like to see this is 2-3 years
