Fevre Domaine William Chablis Vaillons Premier Cru Chardonnay Wine 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2010 Chablis Vaillons emerges from the glass with an expressive bouquet redolent of gunpowder salt and crushed rocks. This is quite rich on the palate where the fruit tends toward yellow stone fruits. Voluptuous lush and intense the Vaillons nevertheless retains great minerality and harmony. This is a beautifully complete and well-balanced wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012+. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village.

The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village. At that time and for the centuries that followed, the Chablis wine trade grew substantially thanks to the waterways that made it possible to supply Paris from Auxerre. With the French Revolution, estates changed hands but remained successful, and the total vineyard surface area reached 38,000 hectares. The end of the 19th century saw the coming of phylloxera in 1887, which wreaked havoc and reduced the vineyards to almost nothing. It was only at the beginning of the 1960s, when the Chablis vineyard surface area was less than 1,000 hectares, that Chablis wine production took off again with the growth of mechanization and setting up of anti-frost systems (another plague for the vines of the region). The current productive vineyard surface area is 4,580 hectares. Read less

Pale bright greenish yellow. Expressive aromas of pineapple grapefruit herbs anise and peppermint. Suave and energetic on entry then tight and sharply defined in the middle with terrific mineral cut to the lemon and grapefruit flavors. Finer-grained than the Montmains but also a bit more austere today. Finishes juicy vibrant and long. This really needs a good five or six years in the cellar. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
