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 Vaucoupin 1er Cru is bright, precise and wonderfully lifted. Citrus peel, crushed rocks, white flowers, and mineral notes confer energy and nuance to this airy, gracious Chablis. Light on its feet yet super-expressive, the 2018 is all class. All the elements are impeccably balanced. The finish is terrific and savory.

92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jan 2020)

Pretty and charming, the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin bursts with notes of peach, yellow orchard fruit and flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and sensuous, with succulent acids and a demonstrative core of fruit, it's giving and expressive.

90 points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Jul 2020)
