Wine EnthusiastRipe, full and showing the richness of the vintage, this comes from one of the premier crus vineyards on the south bank of the Serein river. It's crisp with strong minerality, while also having plenty of ripe citrus and apple fruit. Drink from 2019.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons has a crisp Granny Smith apple and fresh pear scent, very harmonious and with commendable purity. The palate is very cohesive with a slight oyster shell note on the entry. The acidity is well judged with lemon peel and a touch of white peach on the finish. This is a delicious Vaillons that has the edge over the 2014 at the moment.
