The 2016 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons was bottled two weeks previous to my visit, after maturation entirely in tank. This was cropped at 53 hectoliters per hectare—quite decent considering the hail and frost. It has a pretty, quite elegant bouquet that is well defined with subtle sea spray/cockle shed notes emerging from the glass. The palate is dominated by white citrus fruit, segueing into quite an earthy finish. Very fine, even if it is not the best 2015 Vaillons that I encountered during my tastings.
