- Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru Sechet 2011 Product #27592 (In Stock)
A beautiful Chablis that's showing now with fantastic concentration and salty minerality.
"This is not only more elegant but more complex as well with a much greater emphasis on the typical Séchet citrus elements. There is good richness to the round and relatively generous medium weight flavors that possess a seductively textured mouth feel. There is a lovely minerality and underlying tension to the very dry, balanced and persistent finish. This should be good and offer solid mid-term cellaring potential."Allen Meadows 90-92 points
"The Vincent Dauvissat 2011 Chablis Sechet delivers a striking sense of lift and transparency allied to infectious juiciness. Succulent and refreshing grapefruit, lime and yellow plum are wreathed in buddleia and high-toned herbal extracts, then mingled on a buoyant (almost delicate) and silken-textured palate with the saline-sweet savor of raw scallop. The saliva-inducing, umami-rich animal aspects are perfectly complemented by almost infinite juiciness of citrus and pit fruits that are transparent to seductively floral and shimmeringly crystalline-mineral nuances. This long-finishing beauty should not be missed now, in its youth, but I imagine it will continue to cast its spell through at least 2018."Wine Advocate 93 points
- Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru Preuses 2011 Product #26980 (In Stock)
Amazingly approachable already.
"A gorgeously perfumed nose is airy, cool and elegant with vivid aromas of dried citrus peel, acacia blossom, oyster shell and tidal pool hints. The remarkably approachable medium-bodied flavors are ultra-fine, indeed they evidence a silky mouth feel on the harmonious and beautifully persistent finish. I suspect that this impeccably well-balanced and very understated effort will tighten up considerably once it is bottled and as such I have assigned a longer initial drinking window than my description might suggest."Allen Meadows 92-94 points
"Great floral lift and finesse to the aromas of lime blossom, violet, hot rocks and delicate herbs. Elegant and ethereal but quite backward; closed and penetrating but far from painful owing to its airy, fine-grained texture and subtle sweetness. The rising floral and mineral finish goes on and on. I tasted this from a 30-year-old barrel!"International Wine Cellar 93-95 points
