Jean Dauvissat Vaillons Premier Cru Chablis 2018
9.25 stars
12 Mar 2022

While I still have some Jean Dauvissat Fourchaume and Cote de Lechet in the fridge, I opened this Vaillons bottle to make a comparison as well. Quite a deviation from a Chablis norm, my first impression was a fruity wine with good intensity, almost a Puligny Montrachet style with buttery and ripe lemon notes. Later I found out it’s due to malolactique fermentation followed by a long maturation on fine lees, which gives the wines more body and dimensions. As time goes by, I realized Cote de Lechet has more fruit intensity, but the shortest length. Vaillons is somehow in between Fourchaume and Cote de Lechet, providing a balance of both worlds. The wine is still pleasurable without it’s siblings around for comparison, I paired it with a variety of seafood, very enjoyable!
