BOILEAU, Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon
Premier Cru Chablis | Not To Be Missed!

— SHIPPING NOW —

($34.95 per bottle / $419.40 per case) This is a stunning Vaillons Premier Cru Chablis from Etienne Boileau from the highly prized 2014 vintage.
    For years we have swished and swirled in search of a Chablis that could rival Christian Moreau and William Fevre. We have finally found one!
    It's crisp; it's elegant; it's textured; it has just the right amount of fruit; it has just the right amount of acidity; there is a delicious hint of saline; and, there are a handful already in my refrigerator!
    With a sense of urgency, we snatched up as much as we could - as should you. If you are a Burgundy fan, you should know that supply of the highly acclaimed and "classic" 2014 Burgundies is coming to an end. Not to mention, the upcoming 2016 vintage was apocalyptic (hail and rain), which means there will be a shortage of good white Burgundies in the upcoming months.
    This Vaillons vineyard of Chablis, once under the ocean, is loaded with crushed sea and fossil shells, and limestone. It shows! The wine imparts wonderful wet stone, white flowers and a hint of lemon and lime on the nose. An elegant Chablis with a creamy, saline texture on the palate. White peach, young pear, and apple impart great acidity. A real sense of lift is given to the lasting finish. A great vintage. Enjoy! Order Here ».
