"A very flinty nose with attractive yellow and white-peach aromas and a lemon and grapefruit edge, too. The palate has a very sleek and composed feel with such seamless and focused style. Very linear, plush and smoothly ripe. Drink or hold." - James Suckling

 
"The 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru is dense and powerful in the glass. Notes of hard candy, almond and lemon confit come together in a wine of tremendous follow-through. A creamy mouthfeel leads into the rich, textured finish. All of that density builds into an effortless crescendo of aromas, flavors and textures. This is terrific." - Vinous Media
 
 
"Michel's 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is performing very well from bottle, offering up a classy bouquet of crisp white peach, orange zest, spring flowers, fresh pastry and oyster shells. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and broad, with tangy underlying acids, good concentration and tension at the core, and a long, saline finish. This is likely to prove one of the more immediate premiers crus in the range this year, as is often the case." - Robert Parker
 
 
"An interesting top note of white pepper adds a bit of breadth to the citrusy aromas of mineral reduction and ocean breeze although there is still some residual post-bottling sulfur so I would decant this for a few minutes first if you're tempted to try a bottle soon. The mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is notably finer though they don't possess the same density of material while the finish offers evident minerality along with fine depth and persistence. Lovely stuff." - Burghound.com
