This wine was tasted blind at the Burgundy 2012 tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons from Jean-Paul and Benoît Droin has a very reserved bouquet, however it is well defined, stony and linear with fine minerality coming through. The palate is fresh and well balanced with a crisp line of acidity, good fruit concentration and a long persistent tail of freshly sliced lemon and Granny Smith apples. This is showing better than it did a year ago and is recommended. - Neal Martin

Juicy and sweet, showing an attractive sugar/acid balance to its ripe flavors of yellow peach and oyster juice. Good extract here. Finishes dense and dry, with a youthful bitterness. This has unclenched considerably since I tasted it last year right after the bottling.
