Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons
We have two parcels of Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons situated in two different vineyards - Roncières and Épinottes. They face South-East with a soil of colluvial deposits of limestone clay, very stony on a Kimmeridgian bedrock.
10°C - 14°C
3 to 10 years
The Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is pale in colour, lifted by sparkling highlights. It is defined by its powerful and elegant nose of ripe yellow fruits. Its mouth is rich and plump, but also retains its vivacity.
This is a seductive wine that opens up faster than other Chablis 1er cru. It is approachable when young, but also has good ageing potential.
It pairs perfectly with game terrines, burgundy snails, Chablis andouillette, poultry, fish, shellfish and crustaceans – uncooked or in sauce, boiled eggs or Chablis ham.
It can be drunk after 3 years, or up to 10 for certain vintages.
Serve between 12°C and 14°C whether just enjoying it alone or at the table.

The nose is fresh and offers a fine incisive side. It reveals notes of lemon, crushed apple and small notes of fresh nutmeg associated with touches of spices, fresh mirabelle plum as well as discreet hints of citrus fruits, racy minerality and spices / toasted. The palate is fruity and offers acidity, juiciness, an incisive side, tension as well as minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of lemon, crunchy apple and small notes of crunchy nectarine associated with touches of zest / citrus, dried almond, hints of toasted oak as well as an imperceptible hint of spices (in the background) and pink lychee.
