  • Enjoyable expression of place, grape. Seemed to be at its best after 90 minutes open. A delight. Drink in the next several years. recommended

  • From 75cl, good cork pasty-soft at wine end, but seemingly effective. Surprisingly golden and rich for a 1er Cru, I might have guessed a fully mature GC blind. Fine ripe lemon. I think some recent CT TNs overdo the ocean/sea/saline references, but sure, this is evidently a good, concentrated Chablis which has seen old oak. Personally, I wish I had consumed this bottle (like much of my 2008 Chablis collection) in its youth: although this particular bottle wasn't obviously faulty it felt a bit golden-oldie, even tired. But the bottle variation in this vintage is, of course, huge. 90P(?)

  • This was initially quite closed; I actually had to decant it for 20 minutes and pour it back into the bottle before it started to open; but once it did it was pure essence of Chablis! Lemon peel, iodine, sea breeze, crushed stone, and a hint of floral notes. The palate was beautifully balanced with excellent concentration. A really lovely bottle that seemed essentially in its peak window to me.

    Il n'y a pas que Forest ou les Clos chez Dauvissat! Quelle belle bouteille ce Vaillons à maturité; à l'aromatique ténue d'un Chablis, il allie la rondeur puissante du millésime, la minéralité saline et caillouteuse du cru, et pour ma part, une acidité ciselée somptueuse qui venait titiller la langue en finale, une très belle acidité toute en précision, salivante et tenace, très noble, très terroir, très "précise". Floral, végétal (fraicheur de la fougère, chèvrefeuille), beurre frais, citronné, il est plus en nuances que flamboyant, et s'exprime plus en bouche avec un beau tactile rond et tendu. Et cette acidité qui revient...

  • A Few Days in Seattle; 7/19/2019-7/21/2019: Medium yellow. Hay and herb aromas. Oh man, this is all limestone and acidity-Chablis as it was meant to be! Medium weight but gloriously lean and crisp.

    (Vincent Dauvissat (René & Vincent) Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons) Light yellow color; nice floral, lemon, lemon rind nose with a touch of green herb; tight, tart lemon, mineral, tangy palate with depth, should age really nicely; medium-plus finish
