Wine Critic Reviews:

Very attractive aromas of ripe white and yellow peaches here with a gently glossy edge and lightly toasty and flinty nuances. The palate has such richness and composure with a fleshy, smooth build to the long, lemon and peach-soaked finish. Bracing. Drink or hold.

James Suckling | 94 JS
The 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru brings together tremendous textural richness with striking layers of floral brightness and minerality that add complexity. Powerful and yet wonderfully finessed, the 2017 possesses superb energy and vibrancy, with pedigree to burn.

Vinous Media | 94 VM
Vaillons, from the left bank of the Serein river, usually combines crisp acidity with floral notes and an attractive stoned fruit flavour profile. Softer, and a little less precise than the Fourchaume, this displays peach and crisp apple fruit notes allied with roundness and warmth on the palate. Although approachable relatively early, this Vaillons has good concentration and the structure to age. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025

Decanter | 93 DEC
A more floral suffused nose flashes good Chablis typicity with its notes of petrol, pear and ocean breeze. Here too there is fine vibrancy to the sleeker and slightly finer medium weight flavors that offer both good minerality and salinity on the more harmonious finish. Lovely stuff.

Burghound | 92 BH
The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons bursts from the glass with a pretty, aromatic bouquet of citrus blossom, white peach and spring flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and expressive, with an open-knit, satiny-textured core, tangy acids and a precise, mouthwatering finish. From bottle, this confirms Didier Séguier's confidence and merits a higher score than I gave it from barrel.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 92 RP
Round, with peach, apple and lemon flavors. Vibrant acidity keeps this focused and drives the lingering finish. Drink now through 2023. 150 cases imported.
