The Vau de Vey 1er Cru is a particular treat, and this Award Winning wine shows more power and concentration than the classic Chablis AC.
Forthright pear and lime nose. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with very ripe fruit and an overt juiciness. There's good acidity, but the wine doesn't yet seem harmonious, and it's far from crystalline. Quite long and powerful. Drinking Window 2018 - 2025.
91 Points - Decanter Magazine
Harvested by hand, the Vau de Vey displays the classic minerality that we look for in our Chablis, with a distinct smoky note, balanced by beautiful ripe citrus fruit, green apple and a hint of apricot. Mostly aged in stainless steel to retain the wines freshness, 30% is fermented in oak of 1 to 5 years in age, lending it a texture that complements the classic minerality of the wine and its lingering steely finish.
