Located on the Côte des Vaillons, this appellation has 8 distinct « lieux dits ». With a soil base more limestone than clay, sitting on hard, compact Portlandian limestone, it represents all the different types of Chablis terroir under one appellation.
2017 is classically-styled, mineral and features ample fruit intensity, with all of the William Fevre wines displaying the excellent purity we’ve come to expect from this important Domaine. The wines are all bottled under a DIAM cork to ensure a long and graceful evolution in your cellar.
"The 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru brings together tremendous textural richness with striking layers of floral brightness and minerality that add complexity. Powerful and yet wonderfully finessed, the 2017 possesses superb energy and vibrancy, with pedigree to burn. - 94 Points, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
"The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons bursts from the glass with a pretty, aromatic bouquet of citrus blossom, white peach and spring flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and expressive, with an open-knit, satiny-textured core, tangy acids and a precise, mouthwatering finish. From bottle, this confirms Didier Séguier's confidence and merits a higher score than I gave it from barrel. - 92 Points, William Kelley, www.robertparker.com
