Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91 (2017 Oct.)

A cool, pure and overtly spicy, green apple and floral-suffused nose that offers good Chablis character leads to rich, concentrated and relatively powerful middle weight flavors while delivering fine length on the dry and saline-inflected finale. This reasonably precise and well-balanced effort should be capable of rewarding 5 to 8 years of cellaring while being sufficiently forward to be approached in its youth. Recommended.

Vinous - Score: 92 (2018 Nov.)

The 2015 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru has a lot of reduction on the nose that is indicative of a Vincent Dauvissat wine being broached prematurely. The palate is compact and very well balanced, with a fine line of acidity, but ferociously backward, especially on the praline-tinged finish. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
