Glowing pale green with a lean and hungry nose. The wine opens out really well on the palate, this one has nailed the vintage, with an extra gloss, delicious perfume on the classic bone structure. I love the crunch and energy of the aftertaste.

Subtle and aromatic with hints of tropical fruit and citrus, as well as minerals. Medium-bodied with layers of pretty fruit and an almond and honey aftertaste. Drink or hold.

The wine delivers a classy aromatic constellation of apple. pear, citrus zest, a complex base of chalky minerality and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and racy, with impressive complexity and cut, a lovely core and excellent grip and bounce on the long, poised and snappy finish. This is a bit more buttoned up today than the Montmains, so I would opt for tucking the Vaillons away in the cellar for a few years before starting to drink it in earnest. Fine, fine juice.

Medium to full-bodied, its satiny attack segues into a tensile, vibrant and nicely concentrated mid-palate, concluding with a saline finish. - WK

Vinous, September 2020
The 2018 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru has an attractive, forward nose of lemon verbena, chai tea and floral scents, peachy aromas following with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a twist of sour lemon on the entry...   The 2018 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru has an attractive, forward nose of lemon verbena, chai tea and floral scents, peachy aromas following with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a twist of sour lemon on the entry. Slightly minty in style, it displays a fine bead of acidity, although I remain prudent with my score, as it does lack a bit of length. -- Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, December 2020
Fresh as a mountain stream, delivering lemon, lanolin, apple and stone flavors. There is tension, definition and a mineral element on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2027. – BS
