  • Tasting and food pairings

    The Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2015 is a pure and focused wine. The nose is cool and airy with delicate notes of white flowers and fruit. With the 2015 vintage, the wine shows riper fruit than usual with notes closer to apricot or peach rather than citrus while keeping its usual Chablis fresh mineral backbone. The mouth is elegant, well-balanced with a cool and sappy finish.
    Drink with: seafood, grilled fish and white meats in sauces

    • Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2014 - Wine Advocate - 90/100.

      The 2014 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons has a very perfumed, floral bouquet with dandelion and rose petals infusing the citrus fruit. The palate is crisp and poised with commendable acidity, cohesive in the mouth with impressive tension and focus on the finish. Another fine Chablis from Simonet-Febvre. Drink 2016-2024.
