TASTING NOTES

92-95 points Wine Spectator. Tasting date: March, 2017

"The Vaulorent bottling is 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." 

94 points John Gilman. Tasting date: December, 2016

"The 2015 Vaulorent from William Fèvre is equally superb, offering up a deep, pure and nascently complex bouquet of pear, lime, orange blossoms, chalky minerality, a touch of paraffin and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and nicely primary in personality, with a rock solid core, impeccable focus and grip, bright acids and a very long, focused and classy finish. Another stellar bottle in the making!"

93 points Decanter. Tasting date: June, 2018

"Like Montée de Tonnerre, Vaulorent is a brilliantly situated right bank premier cru, picking up the relay where the grands crus of Les Preuses and Bougros ease off. In this warmer vintage, you'll find 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. Best kept for a little longer, but it’s by no means forbidding if broached soon."

92 points Neil Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Tasting date: August, 2017

"The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaulorent showed so well when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle, it has 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."

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

"Like the Montée de Tonnerre there is 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." 

91 points Vinous. Tasting date: August, 2017

"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 than the Montmains."
