Otherworldly Chablis from a distant place.

The Lilian Duplessis Vaillons 2018 is perfect for your occasional bouts of wine-related wanderlust. The Vaillons is sourced from four different parcels – Minot, Epinottes, Séchet and Chatain, prior to being vinified in stainless steel. This wine spends six months in neutral oak, to add body yet preserve the wine’s slightly tropical, fruity qualities. 2018 was an incredible vintage across the board, resulting in a wine that can easily hang for ten years.
  • Domaine Gérard Duplessis spans five generations, and dates back to 1895; Lilian Duplessis took over for his father in 1999.
  • The Chardonnay vines thrive in Kimmeridgian Clay and Limestone soils.
  • Lilian had the opportunity to study winemaking in New Zealand and other parts of the globe, but the guy knows what he likes – and it’s Chablis.
  • Lilian barely uses any sulfur in his wines, and in the 2018 vintage no sulfur was used.
