2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, William Fevre

$360

This wine’s intriguing nose combines rich candlewax with bright lemon oil. The palate is rounded and smooth, with buffered freshness on the midpalate. It is here that the sense of chalky depth comes in, conveying a stony, austere hinterland for which 2018’s generous fruit is mere window dressing. With its depth, the wine expresses the vintage beautifully. 94 points Wine Enthusiast

The 2018 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru is laced with strong mineral and earthy tones that are such a signature. Savory herbs, menthol, licorice, citrus peel and a touch of reduction are all woven together in a Chablis of real class and nuance. This is another wine in the range that is both dense and understated, with a real sense of aromatic lift.
