Australian-born winemaker Marc Cameron, and estate-owner, François Servin – one of the more flamboyant winegrowers in Chablis – is on a qualitative hot streak; three consecutive vintages of the best juice I've tasted here. With parcels of the oldest vines comprising most of their holdings, Wine Advocate in particular insists, "They deserve a berth in your cellar alongside those prized Raveneaus and Dauvissats." Tasting the line-up, I get it. You will, too. Acidities are perfectly balanced with the fruit, but more importantly, the "Chablis" spirit is here – in buckets. What I seek, foremost – my beloved Kimmeridgian vein of salinity – weaves its way throughout François Servin's selections.

Tangy and tensile, the 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin offers up aromas of crisp green apple, oystershell and lemon oil. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, with racy acids and a stony, mineral finish. Despite it's evident energy it appears to be charming and structurally open-knit—but it's too soon to draw a definitive conclusion.

89-91 points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Issue # 238 - Aug 2018)
