Vau de Vey is located in the valley situated behind the Côte de Léchet. Facing East, its slopes are very steep, some of which can only be worked by hand. This appellation is less well-known than the others, but gives wines of excellent quality : delicate, rich, rather mineral and dry.
The 2011 Vau de Vey presents with a pale golden color. On the nose, a predominately stony character with delicate anise and citrus notes. On the palate, elegant wine and precise with long mineral finish. A fine wine !

"This also offers ample Chablis character with plenty of citrus influence on the aromas of classic green fruit, sea breeze and saline. There is impressive concentration to the rich but attractively vibrant flavors that enjoy excellent volume and an abundance of acid buffering dry extract. There isn't much refinement (which is typical of Vau de Vey) but this is actually quite satisfying plus it should drink well young if desired."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 91
"Apple, grapefruit and lime on the nose and the exuberantly juicy, buoyant palate of Brocard’s 2011 Chablis Vau de Vey acquire intriguing complexity from iodine and stone, salt and peat, in a finish of vibrant interactivity."
Antonio Galloni- Vinous (AG): 91
"Smoke, scorched earth, incense, graphite and apricots flesh out in the 2011 Chablis Vau de Vey. The 2011 has more than enough fruit to fill out its big,broad shouldered frame nicely. The 2011 finishes with substantial energy, power and authority. There is no shortage of personality here."
