Layers offruit wrap around the palate in a seductive style that is highly appealing. Apricots, nectarines, spices and a hint of lemon all take shape in the glass. The partial use of oak for vinification and aging, plus the age of the vines themselves, gives the wine much of its richness and volume. This is another gorgeous Chablis from Samuel Billaud.
Wine Advocate 89 points - From disparate estate parcels (each separately vinified) in several lieux-dits but principally Sechet and Roncieres the Billaud-Simon 2011 Chablis Vaillons leads with high-toned herbal essences, lemon oil, and smoky, fusil evocations of crushed chalk. An admirable sense of mid-palate brightness and lift allied to density leads to a finish of bright citricity and relatively austere but impressively-persistent stoniness. I suspect this will be best enjoyed by 2017.
