TASTING NOTES

A selection of the most structured, grand cru-like cuvées, giving complexity and depth. Peach, apple and vanilla flavors play out on the long, smoky finish. 

Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator.

A well-defined bouquet with hints of white flower developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity. A very pretty Chablis with hints of orange sorbet and dried apricot leading to a precise and classy finish. What a superb Vaulorent—this comes recommended. 

Neil Martin, Wine Advocate.

Plenty of mineral reduction present on the fresh nose of tidal pool, pear and floral scents. The textured, powerful and solidly intense flavors possess good size and weight before concluding in a lemony and notably more persistent finale. This should reward a few years of aging yet be accessible in its youth. Outstanding.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Very pale, bright, green-tinged yellow. Subtle aromas of lemon, white pepper, spices and herbs. Sweet, round and rich, delivering the creaminess of the vintage energized by sound lemony acidity and underlying wet-stone minerality. Finishes with a bit more energy and saline grip.

Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.

A brilliantly situated right bank premier cru, picking up the relay where the grands crus of Les Preuses and Bougros ease off. Oranges among the lemons in this wine’s enticing and already articulate scents. The flavour is lavish, rounded and rich by comparison with the more classical 2016s: almond paste, seaweed and spring flowers.
