International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(13% natural alcohol, from a crop level of just 25 hectoliters per hectare): Pale yellow-green color. Very ripe aromas of apple, white peach, minerals and oyster shell. Suave, dry and backward, even austere, showing less personality at present than the Bougros. This highly concentrated, vibrant grand cru is showing its corners today and appears to be shutting down in the bottle. But this is structured to age.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: July/August 2014
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92Didier Seguier compared the 2012 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir to Vaillon, since it shares a sunny exposure that tends to be the first to flower and is often harvested earlier than the other grand crus to capture the acidity. Picked at 25 hectoliters per hectare it has a wonderful bouquet with scents of apricot, dried honey and minerals, perhaps the sunshine really coming through. The palate is very well-balanced with a slightly honeyed entry. The acidity is well-judged and cuts through the intense and concentrated finish. In my opinion, this is a big step up from the Bougros.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Trim and athletic, with a sleek profile reigning in the green apple, lemon and flint notes. Juicy and bright, offering a chalky feel on the long finish. Drink now through 2019. 100 cases imported.Author: Bruce Sanderson
The Fevre family has been an integral part of the Chablis landscape for upwards of 250 years. Since the beginning, though, they have been adamant about protecting and promoting the typicity of Chablis, whose whites draw a unique and well-defined line in the sand when it comes to mineral-laden French Chardonnay. The grand crus from this estate represent the pinnacle of purity and intensity of world-class Chardonnay from France and are characterized by superb delineations of acidity, mineral, crystalline fruit and delicate floral nuance.
