Collet Chablis 1er cru “Vaillons” 2017


Collet raises his Vaillons in equal thirds — one third in tank, one third in foudre, and one third in small barrels (none new). The resulting cuvée is a marriage of the three methods: freshness from the tank, roundness from the foudre, and dryness from the barrel. The Vaillons terroir is very stony, even for Chablis standards, and this wine’s piercing minerality shines through the ripe, golden fruit.

Kelley awarded 90-92 points, finding it “elegantly textural, with lovely purity, a deep core and a stony finish.” Morris awarded 90-93 points, finding it “attractively persistent” and “pure.” This is everything fine Chablis should be. Look for notes of lemon and flowers, with very fine details and Grand Cru length.
