Vinification Methods: Grand Cru Vaudésir parcel is handpicked, like all our Premiers Crus and Grands Crus. We generally start picking in the Grands Crus parcels first because the grapes ripen earlier thanks to their ideal exposure.
We vinified Grand Cru Vaudésir in stainless steel tanks for both alcoholic fermentation, activated with natural yeast during 15-18 days at low temperature (18°C) and malolactic fermentation, thanks to natural bacteria at 20°C for a few months.
Aging Methods: From vintage 2013, Louis Moreau has decided to vinify and age our Grand Cru Vaudésir in stainles steel tank, on fine lies with minimum intervention, to let it express all its power and natural fullness. Then the cuvee will go through a light filtration and bottling.
Generally, the bottling takes place 18-20 months after harvest.
Located between Grand Cru Valmur and Grand Cru Preuses, Vaudésir produces homogeneous wines that can be perceived austere but also fine and floral when young, and will develop a nice, robust and round structure when aging.
