 Vaillons is known for making a bit more generous and textural style of Chablis, and given the age you might think it would be a bit soft. But no! Super racy, high minerality and just a hint of earthy texture in the backround.

This estate goes back to the 1700's and Etienne's ancestors were making wine at least 500 years ago.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Grapes are planted in a steeply sloped (28 degrees) hill in the original parcel of “Vaillon”» with a southeast exposure. The soil here is particularly influenced by iron deposits which yields a wine of fruit and spice and great density. The Vaillons is influenced by notes of “soubois” and, although lacking the elegance of its two companion 1er Crus, it is often the most generous wine of the domaine. The average age of the vines is 45 years.
