Chablis 1er Cru "Vaillons" 2011, Jean Collet & Fils

Medium-light yellow, resplendent. A pleasing nose of white honey, ripe lemon, orange and a hint of apricot. I imagine this points to a lieu-dit with a more southerly exposition because 2011 overall was a fresh vintage. Medium body, medium+ acidity, rounded, main flavour is on orange, its flinty, there is gunpowder, off-sour tangy finish. Good wine with a solid fresh finish. Enjoyable Chablis premier cru. Scores 22/30 for a Chablis 1er Cru.
