Marcel Servin Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

 28.00

This could aromatically pass for a 2014 because while it’s clearly ripe, the expressive nose of citrus-infused white orchard fruit offers the best Chablis typicity of the entire range with the possible exception of the Les Clos. There is both excellent vibrancy and density to the mouth coating medium weight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the lemon rind-suffused finish. This is also quite good and should drink well young and with a few years of bottle age.

Description

Vaillons is one of the largest Premier Cru vineyards in Chablis, located in a valley to the southwest of Chablis town itself. Here, on the western side of the Serein River, a southeasterly aspect and high-quality Kimmeridgian soils make for an excellent terroir. Chardonnay-based wines made in the Vaillons vineyard tend to be floral and more delicate than those from the other side of the river, but still retain Chablis’ characteristic intense minerality.
