Chablis, 1er cru

"The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons was more closed than the Séchets at this point in time, gradually revealing scents of white citrus fruit, nectarine, beeswax and flint, those aromas drawing you in with each swirl of the glass. The palate is very harmonious with a honeyed opening, very concentrated with dried honey, quince and a ravishing ginger and lemongrass-tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. As usual, this is a flattering Vaillons but that would be to overlook the complexity and precision within." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #232

"The 2015 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru has a lot of reduction on the nose that is indicative of a Vincent Dauvissat wine being broached prematurely. The palate is compact and very well balanced, with a fine line of acidity, but ferociously backward, especially on the praline-tinged finish. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting."

"A cool, pure and overtly spicy, green apple and floral-suffused nose that offers good Chablis character leads to rich, concentrated and relatively powerful middle weight flavors while delivering fine length on the dry and saline-inflected finale. This reasonably precise and well-balanced effort should be capable of rewarding 5 to 8 years of cellaring while being sufficiently forward to be approached in its youth. Recommended." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 68
