For those who savour such eternal Premier Cru classics as Montmains, Montée de Tonnere and Fourchaum, Vau de Vey reminds us of the joy there is in discovering (or revisiting) a slightly more hidden gem from among Chablis’ rich collection of top terroirs. Above all, when expressed by such artisanal producers as Domaine des Malandes.

Cool climate chardonnay fans will particularly appreciate Vau de Vey, owing to its steep, south and east exposure, and to the north wind that sweeps the valley. Here, both factors oblige a longer ripening time for fruit which makes for cuvées of extraordinary vibrancy and structure.

In the 2020 vintage, Domaine des Malandes render their three hectares of Vau de Vey Premier Cru with sheer elegance, giving enticing aromas of melon and grapefruit citrus on the nose for a palate of green apple fruit, citrus zest and a gorgeous, mid-palate richness and an intriguing ‘slatey’ character that evolves. The finish is crisp yet creamy, minerally-infused, long and lingering with a delicate touch of oaky warmth. Truly a Premier Cru-calibre cuvée.

Which is hardly surprising when you consider the seasoned savoir-faire passing through three generations since the Domaine’s founding in 1949 – then with a mere seven hectares. Since then, the estate has flourished into 29 hectares spread across Petit Chablis, Chablis Villages, Premier and Grand Cru, and well guided under the auspices of siblings Richard and Amadine Marchive, who ensure a sustained focus on precision, finesse of aroma and the utmost authenticity in terroir expression.

“The 2020 Chablis Vau de Vey 1er Cru has a light, steely nose that is very zen-like, with crustacean aromas emerging with time. The palate is better, offering sour lemon and orange peel on the entry and fine acidity that lends satisfying tension…”
90pts., Neal Martin, Vinous

"There's a real artistry in their strained use of old oak barrels for the fermentation of Chablis. Used cleverly it can add a little texture and body to the wine, but it must never impede the delicate, mineral character which Chablis lovers crave, and the winemaking team at Domaine des Malandes have nailed it."
James Russell-Grant, Mr.Wheeler
