Tasting Notes

Pale lemon with a lime tint. Some gracious generous voluptuous qualities to the nose. The style of the year seems to work really well here and there is a little bacon fat and beneficial youthful bitterness. This is very complete and has an excellent grip. It has reached but not exceeded the limit of quality ripeness. Tasted: May 2019

Score: 92/94Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, May 2019

The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent bursts with aromas of fresh peach, orange rind, white flowers and apples. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with broad shoulders, chewy extract and lively acids. This is already quite complete, even at this early stage, and would appear to number among the highlights of the range this year—though that's hardly a surprise.

Score: 91/93+William Kelley, Wine Advocate (244), August 2019

The 2018 Chablis Vaulorent 1er Cru takes all the signatures of this small site and amps them up to the next level. Lemon confit, almond, dried fruit and floral notes lift from an intense, vertical wine endowed with real palate presence and depth. Seamless, ample and creamy, the Vaulorent is simply superb. Tasted next to the Fourchaume, the Vaulorent is a bigger and more dramatic wine.
