2017 Simonnet-Febvre Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml


In stock


Tasting Notes:

An expressive bouquet of honeysuckle, fresh peach and ripe citrus oil introduces the 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, a medium to full-bodied, expansive wine with a satiny attack, a succulent core of fruit and a saline finish. This is a very typical and nicely executed rendition of Vaillons.

Tasting Notes:

Some attractive stony and chalky aromas, as well as white peaches and hints of yellow grapefruit. The palate has a great sense of detail and composure. Very tight with good density and weight and a tense finish. Try from 2021.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The Maison & Domaine of Simonnet-Febvre were founded in 1840 by Jean Febvre, a barrel maker by trade from the town of Montbard. In the early days, the house was known for its sparkling Chardonnays from Chablis, known today as Crémants de Bourgogne. Over the years, the Febvres acquired holdings in some of the greatest terroirs in Chablis. Today, the domaine comprises approximately 9 acres, crowned by a 2/3 acre plot in the Grand Cru vineyard of Les Preuses, with 3.5 acres of 1er Cru Mont de Milieu and 4.7 acres of communal Chablis vineyards. In 2003, Simonnet-Febvre was acquired by Maison Louis Latour. Since its purchase, the Latours have completely renovated the winemaking facilities, installing new stainless steel tanks and pneumatic presses. The vineyards have been reworked with the same sustainable vineyard practices utilized in Latour’s 125 acre domain in the Côte d’Or. Maison Louis Latour also hired a talented new winemaker, Jean-Philippe Archambaud.
