The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons was more closed than the Séchets at this point in time, gradually revealing scents of white citrus fruit, nectarine, beeswax and flint, those aromas drawing you in with each swirl of the glass. The palate is very harmonious with a honeyed opening, very concentrated with dried honey, quince and a ravishing ginger and lemongrass-tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. As usual, this is a flattering Vaillons but that would be to overlook the complexity and precision within. Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate

A cool, pure and overtly spicy, green apple and floral-suffused nose that offers good Chablis character leads to rich, concentrated and relatively powerful middle weight flavors while delivering fine length on the dry and saline-inflected finale. This reasonably precise and well-balanced effort should be capable of rewarding 5 to 8 years of cellaring while being sufficiently forward to be approached in its youth. Recommended. Allen Meadows - Burghound

Pale yellow. Reticent aromas of menthol, oatmeal and white truffle, with stone and citrus fruit notes in the deep background. Silky on entry, then quite firm in the middle, conveying an impression of strong soil character--and sound acidity--to its flavors of citrus fruits, minerals and oatmeal. This rather powerful wine finishes very long and youthful, a tad aggressive but not dry. Dauvissat told me he's already drinking this wine but I believe that it's destined for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media
