Winery notes (2016 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."


89-91/100 Vinous, October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"(80% cuve but there are also a few fûts and two demi-muids): Light-medium yellow. Fresh apricot and yellow peach aromas are accented by ginger, white pepper and herbs. Suave, brisk and minerally, showing lovely inner-mouth floral lift, not to mention a complementary touch of oak. Nicely dry and spicy, and well-delineated, but in an essentially round, easy going style and a bit less saline than the Fourchaume. These old vines produced a healthy crop of 50 hectoliters per hectare in 2016, according to Bailly."
89-91/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound, February 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"(from Séchet, Roncières, Châtains, Mélinots and Vaillons proper). A cooler and less obviously exotic nose blends notes of pear, iodine, grapefruit and admirably subtle wood influence. The finer if slightly less concentrated middle weight flavours possess better cut and minerality on the nicely focused finale. This isn’t quite as powerful as the Fourchaume but the overall sense of balance and proportion is superior."
