Why do we love it?

Vaudesir takes its name from a paraphrase of Valle des Desirs, which means the valley of desires. And the Chablis Vaudesir Grand Cru 2015 by Olivier Leflaive is one of the most desired Chardonnays worldwide! Elegant, savory, complex, with sharp acidity, it is addressed to the fans of Chardonnay but also to its opponents, because it will surely conquer them all!

After World War I, the bankrupt Joseph Leflaive decided to return to the vineyards he owned in Burgundy. Years later and after having acquired many pieces of land in various surrounding areas, he gave the reins of the estate to Olivier Leflaive. Gaining as much knowledge as he needed, Olivier decided in 1984 to make his own winery. His philosophy was simple: to make only amazing wines. And if you ask anyone, he definitely does it.

Vaudesir is considered by many to be one of the top Crus in Chablis, giving wines of impressive elegance and sophistication. For the Chablis Vaudesir Grand Cru by Olivier Leflaive, the grapes were harvested both mechanically and by hand, depending on the location. The wine was then fermented in stainless-steel tank and then transferred to oak barrels (15% new) where it aged for 9 months. The result is perhaps one of Chardonnay's purest expressions that uniquely reflects Chablis's special terroir!

Chablis Vaudesir Grand Cru 2015 by Olivier Leflaive is amazing now, but if you are patient it will get even better!
