Wine Critic Reviews for 2018 Patrick Piuze Chablis Vaulorent

(Chablis “Vaulorent”- Domaine Patrick Piuze) After this vineyard being too heavily-frosted in 2017 to produce a wine from, I was very happy to see it once again back in the Domaine Piuze lineup in 2018. This is a dynamite premier cru, offering up a precise and complex bouquet of apple, pear, a touch of blood orange, a very complex base of minerality, dried flowers and a bit of straw in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and vibrant, with a great core, laser-like focus and lovely cut and grip on the long, balanced and very classy finish. (Drink between 2023-2055)

The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent numbers among the highlights of the Piuze range this year, unfurling in the glass with notes of lime zest, lemon oil, oyster shells and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with superb concentration, excellent tension at the core and a pure, precise finish.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93 RP
Chalky, floral and very fresh with custard-like notes and a lime edge to the nose. The palate delivers a very contained, succulent feel with a racy-acidity and mineral wash, across fresh melon and lemon pastry. Density here is a feature. Drink or hold on release.

James Suckling | 93-94 JS
Lemon cake, apple, floral and light vanilla flavors grace this supple, juicy white, with a creamy texture. Lively acidity keeps this all balanced and focused. The fluid feel makes this approachable now, yet it should develop further over the short term. Drink now through 2025. 248 cases made, 73 cases imported.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
