Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is showing beautifully, mingling notes of white peach and spring blossom with hints of Meyer lemon, crisp green apple and pear. Medium to full-bodied, its satiny attack segues into a tensile, vibrant and nicely concentrated mid-palate, concluding with a saline finish.

About This Wine

Powerful bouquet, combining aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit with a mineral note typical of the appellation. Rich and concentrated, the palate has remarkable freshness and length.

Wines of Chablis

Arguably the most uniquely tasting Chardonnay in the world, most people are blown away to discover this special type of Chardonnay for the first time. The cool climate region produces wines with more acidity and less fruit flavours, but a unique flinty note derived from the soils.

Although considered a part of the Burgundy wine region, Chablis is closer in distance to Champagne which it shares an exceedingly rare and unique soil with. Kimmeridgian soil is not found anywhere else in the world except in southern England, Champagne and Chablis. A 180-million-year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, this soil type produces wines full of minerality, salinity, intensity, and finesse.

In Chablis they use a similar ranking system to that of Burgundy. From Grand Crus at the top, to Premier Crus, to Chablis and Petit Chablis at the bottom.
