The 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru is bright, precise and beautifully sculpted. Petrol, graphite and white flowers give the Vaillons an exotic feel that is really beguiling. Pliant and also chiseled, the Vaillons impressed with its alluring beauty and exceptional balance. Although the 2017 is going to need a number of years to be at its very finest, it is also really impressive today. (AG)
More waxy, fresh apples and some pear nuances here. A chalky refined nose with very very pure white peaches. Steely, too. Softer, more plush and smooth. More topsoil here, so it delivers more weight. The length is impressive. Succulent, long lime and grapefruit flavors. Some pastry to close. Try from 2020.
Aromas of fresh peach, white flowers and mint introduce the 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, the most expressive and outgoing wine in Dauvissat's 2017 collection. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and supple, with an elegantly textural attack, a layered core and a saline finish. If any readers intend to drink their Dauvissat premiers crus in the flush of youth, this is the bottling they should seek out. (WK)
A lightly exotic nose consists of pure white orchard fruit and muscat nuances that display background hints of floral character, mineral reduction and seaweed. The rich, round, succulent and concentrated flavors possess an opulent but balanced finish where the minerality really comes to the fore. Once again, this excellent effort should age well over the mid-term. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*
