Sold at a higher price than the domaine's straight Fourchaume because it's 'more profound', according to Didier Séguier, this comes from a Premier Cru that often makes wines of Grand Cru quality. Subtly wooded, with mouthwatering salinity, this shows the dry extract and concentration that are features of the vintage complemented by creamy, pillowy lees. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028. (TA)
The 2018 Chablis Vaulorent 1er Cru takes all the signatures of this small site and amps them up to the next level. Lemon confit, almond, dried fruit and floral notes lift from an intense, vertical wine endowed with real palate presence and depth. Seamless, ample and creamy, the Vaulorent is simply superb. Tasted next to the Fourchaume, the Vaulorent is a bigger and more dramatic wine. (AG)
The 2018 Vaulorent is clearly of grand cru quality this year! The wine is beautifully pure and complex on both the nose and palate, with a nice sense of reserve that augurs very, very well for its future evolution in bottle. The nose delivers a refined mix of pear, fresh lime, flinty minerality, citrus peel, dried flowers and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and racy, with great nascent complexity, a superb core, bright acids and outstanding focus and grip on the soil-driven and stellar finish.
No tasting note given.
Not surprisingly this is aromatically similar to the Fourchaume though here there is a whiff of wood in evidence. The slightly sleeker and finer medium-bodied flavors possess good power and punch while remaining refined and composed on the impressively long and well-balanced finale.
The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent bursts with aromas of fresh peach, orange rind, white flowers and apples. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with broad shoulders, chewy extract and lively acids. This is already quite complete, even at this early stage, and would appear to number among the highlights of the range this year—though that's hardly a surprise. (WK)
