Fish, seafood and shellfish, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.

Critical Acclaim

"There is quite a bit of tension and acidity on the finish to frame layers of rich, highly expressive fruit in the 2011 Chablis Vaillons. This explosive Chablis captures an attractive middle ground between the cooler and riper styles of the year, with both plenty of detail and depth. Since 2006, this parcel has been farmed biodynamically. Anticipated maturity: 2013+. Range: 91-93"
93 Points

"Saltwater, floral notes and subtle spice nuances characterize the aromas that slide gracefully into rich, concentrated and relatively refined medium-bodied flavors that display excellent delineation on the solidly powerful and mineral-driven flavors. This is dry and pure if not quite as complex as the domaine version of the Montmains."
92 Points

"he 2011 Chablis Vaillons is pretty, textured and open, with lovely veins of underlying minerality that lend an air of brightness to the white stone fruit and pear flavors. The Vaillons is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years."

Wines produced in Chablis are some of the most unique in the world. Typical descriptors of a classic Chablis include a greenish tinge on the wine, minerality and crisp acidity balanced by a round mouthfeel....
