Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, clear colour with a golden core. This intensely aromatic 1er Cru reveals ripe citrus fruits and white flowers. The palate is remarkably seductive with a lively attack. Its refined aromas linger on the palate and disclose plenty of fruit and a delicate acidity which gives a pleasant sensation of freshness.

This 1er Cru Les Vaillons is sourced from a 3 hectare plot within Vaillons. Vaillons is derived from the term ‘vallon’, meaning ‘small valley’. The vineyard’s exposure is south/southwest with kimmeridgian (clay and limestone) soils."


92/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons has a clean, precise, chalky bouquet with hints of shucked oyster shells coming through with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. I appreciate the precision and mineralité here, a touch of flint lending edginess and tension all the way through to the finish. This is a really superb effort from Billaud-Simon."
90/100 Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, August 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright light-medium yellow. Fresh yellow fruits, ginger and a whiff of oyster shell on the nose. Not as opulent in the mouth as the nose suggests but still possesses the thickness of the vintage. Some spicy lift energizes the mid-palate. The rising, lingering finish shows a hint of youthful bitterness, but the touch of oak (about 10%) is nicely integrated."
89-91/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound, October 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"This is very different from the Fourchaume with its spicy and intensely floral nose that is more elegant if not quite as complex. There is slightly less volume but more precision to the round and supple middle weight flavors that tighten up on the delicious and lingering finish. Like most of these 2015s, this too should drink well on the younger side."
