2018, La Chablisienne, CHABLIS 1er Cru "Vaillons"
The 2018 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru comes from 25-year-old vines. It has a bold peach and pear bouquet that feels exuberant and willing to please. The palate is honeyed on the entry, and lower in acidity than expected, with a seductive, honeyed, tropical-tinged finish. Very drinkable but lacks the nerve and tension of a great Chablis. 88/100 Neal Martin, Vinous.
