Rich but precise and forthright lime and apple nose. The palate has a fresh, bright attack and combines concentration with tension and minerality. Well balanced and will age well. Drinking Window 2017 - 2026. (SB)
This is the first wine among these bottled 2015s to display any appreciable amount of reduction and in this case it's sufficiently pronounced to warrant a thorough aeration if you're going to open a bottle young. Otherwise, the refined, cool and solidly well-concentrated flavors possess both good minerality as well as plenty energy while offering slightly better persistence on the well-balanced finale where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Drink: 2020+
The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaulorent comes from 30-year-old vines and sees 15 months in stainless steel and oak barrel. It has an attractive, waxy, orange blossom and honeysuckle-scented nose, with an underlying mineralité that I think will develop with bottle age. The palate is well balanced, with a waxy texture opening, a fine bead of acidity and a smooth, almond and nutmeg-tinged finish that lingers nicely. No, not quite up there with the Montée de Tonnerre but a fine Vaulorent that will give several years of drinking pleasure. (NM)
