It is an intensely pointed energetic wine loaded with class and pedigree. The aromas and flavors meld together beautifully and lead to a multi-dimensional inviting finish marked by clean saline notes. This is a 2009 that could use another few years in bottle. Vinification and aging in stainless steel helped keep the Vaillons quite vibrant. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. -Antonio Galloni

Aromas of white peach and white flowers. Generous and fruity but more delicate than the Tete d'Or with a subtle sweetness to the white peach and nectarine flavors. Nicely balanced wine and not at all hot on the back... Aromas of white peach and white flowers. Generous and fruity but more delicate than the Tete d'Or with a subtle sweetness to the white peach and nectarine flavors. Nicely balanced wine and not at all hot on the back end. Bernard Billaud noted that these 2009s have acidity in the 4 grams-per-liter range but they come across as a bit softer.

A spicy and expressive nose of white pepper citrus high-toned floral and pear aromas gives way to rich fresh and utterly delicious flavors that possess a rounded and even tender mouth feel all wrapped in a saliva-inducing and saline finish of much better than average depth and length. Like the majority of these '99s this could easily be enjoyed now or held for a few years first.
