Vaulorent is the only Premier Cru vineyard located on the same hill as the Grand Crus, lying at the northern end where it borders the climats of Preuses and Bougros. The vineyard's northwesterly exposure makes for a slightly unusual terroir in this part of Chablis however, there is still plentiful sunlight throughout the growing season, and the high-quality soils warm up quickly with the sun's rays, which aides in creating a mesoclimate that ensures optimum ripening to produce one of the most elegant styles of Chablis Premier Cru.
Now made separately from Fèvre's Fourchaume bottling - it's technically part of the same large premier cru - this has the structure and complexity of a top grand cru. It's powerful yet fresh, with impressive density and notes of aniseed and citrus peel.
The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent is a terrific effort that's one of the finest premier cru bottlings from Fèvre that I've ever tasted. Unwinding in the glass with a lively bouquet of fresh peach, green apples, spring blossom, oyster shell and wheat toast, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with exceptional concentration, racy acids and a long, penetrating finish. Didier Séguier should be very proud of this weightless but intense Vaulorent, a wine that outshines plenty of grand cru Chablis this year.
The 2017 Chablis Vaulorent 1er Cru is the richest of William Fèvre’s wines on the nose, despite just a touch of reduction. It has a complex bouquet with scents of toffee apple, honeysuckle, marzipan and almond that is very well defined. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, very harmonious in the mouth with tangy marmalade and citrus lemon on the finish. Excellent.
A restrained nose is comprised by notes of smoky reduction, sea breeze and a whiff of exotic fruit. The super-rich, dense and very suave flavors coat the palate with sappy dry extract while the powerful and focused finish delivers outstanding length. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*
