Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy, June 2019
(90-93 points) This is a blend from across the wider Vaillons appellation with two plots in Séchets, two in Chatains, one each in Mélinots and Roncières. Currently all is in tank but some will spend a bit of time in wood...   (90-93 points) This is a blend from across the wider Vaillons appellation with two plots in Séchets, two in Chatains, one each in Mélinots and Roncières. Currently all is in tank but some will spend a bit of time in wood. Just sulphured so the nose has been temporarily hindered. A faint green tint to the pale colour. Typical Vaillons on the palate though with more flesh than usual, white stone fruit, a little heat at the back but nothing serious. This is very promising.

Even so, there is good depth, as well as the strong balance of fruit intensity and vibrancy that runs through all of these wines. The Vaillons is a blend of six parcels in the greater Vaillons, composed of two in Vaillons proper and one each in Melinots, Roncieres, Secher and Chatains. -- Antonio Galloni

Burghound, October 2020
A more elegant and airier if more restrained nose speaks of mineral reduction, citrus zest, spice and plenty of white pepper and floral nuances. There is actually a bit less volume to the more finely detailed middle...   A more elegant and airier if more restrained nose speaks of mineral reduction, citrus zest, spice and plenty of white pepper and floral nuances. There is actually a bit less volume to the more finely detailed middle weight flavors that deliver fine length on the precise, dry and chiseled finale that is nicely complex if not particularly refined.

Wine Spectator, September 2021
This rich white is full of lemon and peach flavors that show a touch of vanilla. The wine's breadth and fleshy texture are offset by juicy acidity as this glides to a lingering finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,400 cases...   This rich white is full of lemon and peach flavors that show a touch of vanilla.
