Burghound"Here the nose is quite similar to the regular cuve but with slightly better ripeness and fruit density. As is usually the case there is better mid-palate density thanks to the abundance of dry extract that also serves to buffer the moderately firm, saline and lingering finale. This is quite promising and should develop well over the medium-term."
Wine Advocate"The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons Cuve Guy Moreau has a precise, oyster-shell tinged bouquet that is beautifully focused and cohesive. The palate is very harmonious on the entry with hints of lemon curd and orange zest, the acidity supremely well judged, easing down toward a graceful and poised lime and nutmeg infused finish. What a lovely Vaillons in the making. "
Vinous"Bright yellow-green. Aromas of mirabelle, spiced meat and sexy oak, lifted by spices, mint and lavender. Rich and creamy on the palate but quite dry and penetrating too, with a spicy character carrying through on the long finish. This is much less harmonious today than the regular Vaillons as the malolactic fermentation only finished in early May, vs. January for the other wine. Fabien Moreau planned to take it out of oak soon after my visit."
Wine SpectatorSmoky in aroma, this white boasts apple and lemon flavors, with a hint of citrus peel. The finish has a tactile element and quininel and white pepper accents. Best from 2017 through 2023. 400 cases imported.
