Vinous, 93 Points 

"The 2018 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru is airy and gracious, with striking inner perfume and lift. Citrus peel, white pepper and chalk give the Vaillons its brilliant aromatic top register and total sense of class. This is an especially bright, tender style for Vaillons (an early-ripening site) and for the vintage. Bright saline notes punctuate the finish." 

James Suckling, 92 Points 

"Aromas and flavors of dried pineapple, green apple, green olive and toast. It’s medium-bodied with sharp acidity. Tight and mineral, with some beeswax notes on the finish. Drink or hold." 

Burghound, 92 Points 

"A more classically styled nose features notes of citrus, iodine, seashore and cool green apple. The middle weight and attractively energetic flavors combine good minerality and density with a dry, youthfully austere and focused finale. Lovely." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"As one of the largest land holders in the premier cru of Vaillons, the Droin family makes this wine one of the best bargains in the AOC. With its south - southeast exposure and gentle slope, Vaillons is considered, along with Montmains, to be one of the top premier crus west of the Yvonne. Benoît makes an elegant version of Vaillons that is floral and mineral, particularly in warmer vintages. Only about 20% of this wine is aged in neutral barrel with the remainder in tank." 

Alcohol: 13% 

Sustainably farmed.
