2014 Domaine Servin Chablis 1er cru "Vaillons"

SKU #1327042 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A slightly riper nose blends floral and pepper nuances with citrus, sea breeze, pear and interesting hints of orange peel. There is both good volume and punch to the beautifully intense and tension-filled middle weight flavors that possess slightly better concentration as well as a bit more depth and persistence on the caressing finish where a hint of bitter lemon appears. In a word, excellent.  (10/2016)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons has come on nicely since I tasted it from barrel last year. The bouquet has retained, enhanced those yellow flower scents, perhaps its flintiness more conspicuous now that the wine is in bottle. The palate is fresh and crisp, not as shrill as I feared it might be, but certainly taut and linear. It has a saline spiciness, like the tang of fresh cockles, furnishing the finish. What a delicious Chablis Vaillons from winemaker Marc Cameron. (NM)  (8/2016)

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
