AM91

A cool, pure and restrained nose only grudgingly reveals its layered combination of citrus, floral, lemon zest, pepper and iodine-inflected aromas. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension to the impressively intense and markedly saline flavors that deliver excellent persistence on the mouth coating, clean and markedly dry finish. This attractive effort should drink well early as there is plenty of extract, though reward extended cellaring as well. (Burghound)

Vincent-Dauvissat


Along with François Raveneau, Dauvissat is unquestionably Chablis’ greatest producer and those two domaines had been only choice for quality oriented wine connoisseurs like us for many decades.

Since 1931, Dauvissat family has been selling wine under their own label. Dauvissat is well known as a traditionalist who use oak barrel for vinification* and ageing(same as Raveneau) - but he says most important thing is not a barrel, it's a vineyard. He started biodynamie partially in 1998, and spreaded to all the vineyards in 2002. Since then, seems the wine has acquired further accurate expression of terroir, verticality and purity. (*In fact both Raveneau and Dauvissat use both oak barrel and stainless tank today)



Raveneau or Vincent Dauvissat? Cognoscenti seem to be split about which of these growers represent the pinnacle of Chablis, though frankly I would not complain if I found either in my glass. I have adored these wines for many years, though this was the first time that I had visited their small 16th and 17th century cellars. Vincent’s grandfather was one of the first to bottle his own wines in the 1930s, then Rene took over with his wife Madeleine and enhanced the domaine’s reputation until his retirement. Vincent told me that the first vintage that he participated in was the 1977 and that know-how had been passed down through empiricism, from father to son and so on. There are around 14 hectares of vine, predominantly premier cru.(eRobertParker)
