95 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru is a very beautiful wine. Vaudésir can be a bit rustic and hard, but the 2017 is wonderfully nuanced. Bright floral notes, green pear, lemon peel, mint and white pepper confer energy and tension to this bright wine. This steely, nervous Chablis is endowed with superb personality and tons of character, but its real potential won't be realized without at least a number of years in bottle. Time in the glass brings out the wine's texture and volume. The Vaudésir is not an obvious wine, but it has so much to say to those who can be patient. Drink: 2027-2037. (Jan 2020)"

93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .71 ha parcel). Moderate wood does not materially detract from the mildly exotic yet cool and pure dried yellow fruit, mineral reduction and oyster shell aromas. The delicious, succulent and overtly powerful medium plus weight flavors possess ample amounts of dry extract on the sappy, stony and lingering finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This is perhaps a bit less refined than usual but is still quite lovely and should drink well young but age well too. I would point out that this needs to develop better depth but there is plenty of time for that to occur. Drink: 2029+. (Oct 2019)"

92 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Fragrant and exotic, the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir bursts with notes of white flowers, orange rind, musky peach and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with lively acids, a fleshy core and a long, floral and intensely saline finish. Drink: 2020-2035. (Aug 2019)"
