Why do we love it?
Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons Raoul Gautherin, is a very characteristic and classic Chardonnay from the prestigious Chablis, which combines the elegant aromas of white flowers, with juicy fruit and the very special minerality of the region. The epitome of Chablis quality has just arrived at such a price that you no longer have to wonder which wine you will consume in the following period!
 
Vaillons is located west of the River Serein in the village of Chablis, Burgundy, and is one of the largest Premier Cru vineyards in the greater Chablis region. Its most special feature, however, is the rare soil, called Kimmeridgian, which is a mixture of limestone and clay, which creates a very special terroir. This results in the production of wines of exemplary quality with the purity of fruit, crisp acidity, and particular elegance, which of course you can keep for years in your cellar, but are just as enjoyable even young!
 
Raoul Gauthier et Fils winery has a huge history in Burgundy winemaking and was established in 1950, but the vineyards it cultivates date back to 1585! The knowledge of the old and the innovations in winemaking, brought the winery today, in a position to produce Petit Chablis, Premier Cru, and Grand Cru, and in fact, some of the most popular worldwide. For Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, Raoul Gautherin the Chardonnay came from 6 different plots with an average age of 43 years, which fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then, the juice remained in contact with the lees for 15 whole months, without batonnage and the result is a very well-structured wine, with an intense character and a rich aromatic dimension.
 
Raoul Gautherin Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is a wine worth treating yourself to and a must-have in your collection. The number of bottles is very limited!
