Vaillons is a significant Premier Cru classified climat of Chablis, located just south-west of Chablis town. The Vaillons slopes are predominantly south-east-facing, and are similar in their geological profile to the Chablis Grand Cru sites which lie just the other side of Chablis town, across the Serein Valley. The soils here are composed of light, sandy topsoil with the Kimmeridgian (limestone-rich) subsoil so characteristic of Chablis. In fact, the easternmost Vaillons vines are planted only 1.25 miles (2km) away from those of the prestigious Les Clos Grand Cru climat. Vaillons is separated from the Montmains Premier Cru climat only by a 1000ft (300m) strip of flatter, unclassified land. Together, they occupy a roughly rectangular area that accounts for a large proportion of Chablis Premier Cru production.
