2020 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, William Fèvre

Vaillons is a warm, sunny premier cru, and Fèvre has 3.5 hectares right in the middle of the slope. Their 55-year-old vines produce concentration and ripeness in the wine. This 2020 is bursting with white peaches and blossom on the nose, with a vibrant citrus-edged palate. It is totally delicious already, but will age brilliantly too.

TASTING NOTES

Touches of menthol and wood surround the floral and pepper scented nose that isn't quite as fresh as that of the Montmains. There is by contrast good energy to the very rich and nicely voluminous flavors that conclude in a bitter lemon and intensely saline-inflected finale. Very good but not truly special.
