Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons Domaine 2015
View From the Cellar
The 2015 Vaillons from the domaine is a touch more fruit-driven in personality than the lovely Montmains this year, though still with a fine vein of chalkiness running from stern to aft. The bouquet delivers a lovely blend of pear, tangerine, chalky soil tones and a topnote of orange blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and really rock solid at the core, with impressively racy acidity, lovely focus and balance and a long, vibrant finish.
