The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons has a clean, precise, chalky bouquet with hints of shucked oyster shells coming through with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity.

The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. I appreciate the precision and mineralité here, a touch of flint lending edginess and tension all the way through to the finish. This is a really superb effort from Billaud-Simon. - Neal Martin

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, July 2016
(89-91 points) Bright pale yellow. An aroma of lemon zest is lifted by a floral topnote. Concentrated and sappy, with lemon and white peach flavors braced by ginger and quinine notes, not to mention a lot of CO2... (89-91 points) Bright pale yellow.

Winemaker Olivier Bailly may add some oak lots to this wine (it certainly appears to possess the energy to support a wood component) but the barrels haven't yet finished their malolactic fermentations. - Stephen Tanzer

(BH89-91 points) This is very different from the Fourchaume with its spicy and intensely floral nose that is more elegant if not quite as complex. There is slightly less volume but more precision to the round and supple middle weight flavors that tighten up on the delicious and lingering finish. Like most of these 2015s, this too should drink well on the younger side.
