B-21 Top Recommendation

Australian-born winemaker Marc Cameron, and estate-owner, François Servin – one of the more flamboyant winegrowers in Chablis – is on a qualitative hot streak; four 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.

The 2018 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru is dense and rich in the glass. Tropical fruit, hazelnut, mint, lemon peel and chamomile infuse the 2018 with notable character. This is one of the richer, deeper, more plush wines in the range. Time in the glass brings out slightly more exotic notes that add to the wine's considerable appeal. The 2018 is soft, creamy and wonderfully enticing from the very first taste.
