What do the experts say?

William Kelley (Wine Advocate): Michel's 2017 Chablis 1º Cru Vaillons is performing very well from bottle, offering up a classy bouquet of crisp white peach, orange zest, spring flowers, fresh pastry and oyster shells. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and broad, with tangy underlying acids, good concentration and tension at the core, and a long, saline finish. This is likely to prove one of the more immediate premiers crus in the range this year, as is often the case.
