AM92

An elegant and extremely pure nose of citrus, stone and sea breeze where the latter two elements also characterize the rich, full-bodied and solidly well-concentrated flavors that are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that confers a textured quality to the seductive and saline-infused finish that displays impeccable balance. Despite the impressive size and weight this is actually quite fine; indeed I would even go so far as to call this a wine of finesse.
(Burghound)

RP92

The 2010 Chablis Sechets is all about intensity. In this vintage, the Sechets impresses for its persistence and multi-dimensional personality. The slightly angular contours typical of the wine are present, but there is so much fruit that they are barely perceptible. An attractive, spiced note adds complexity on the finish. I also tasted the 1993, which was flat-out stunning, with many fine years of drinking still left. I only wished I owned it.

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)
