Some oak and some tank. This is a very floral cuvée with dried white flowers and some richer nectarines and peaches, as well as subtle hazelnut oak. The palate has a very taut core with fleshy fruit draped at the edges. This is open, smooth and layered. An elegant finish. Approachable on release. Range:91-92
The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, a blend of fully five of Vaillons's lieux-dits, exhibits aromas of lemon oil, pastry cream and anise. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, saline and structurally open-knit, with a gently oak-inflected finish. This sees some 4% new wood. Range: 89-91
Leaving first a soft and very aromatic taste in the mouth, this wine rapidly lets out fresh fruit and mineral notes. It is the Premier Cru best inclined to be consumed when still young; though can age beautifully.
