Picked early. This is at a slightly different stage of elevage so is currently cloudy. Stones rinsed in lemon sums up the bouquet. Sunny and austere together, a mature terroir, steely backbone and finish. Bring on the grilled fish. Tasted: June 2021

Derived from old vines in Les Minots (that are a source for the Fèvre massale selection), as well as holdings in Roncières and Chatains, the 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons unwinds in the glass with notes of white flowers, crisp stone fruit and clear honey. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it’s a beautifully vibrant, racy wine that concludes with a long, penetrating finish. It’s the best young Vaillons I’ve ever tasted chez Fèvre.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045
