- Dauvissat Chablis Village 2012 Product #28023 (In Stock)
A stunning village wine from one of Burgundy's best white wine estates. Delicious now, but best after 2016. Very limited.
"As is typically the case chez Dauvissat this displays even more Chablis character with a completely different aromatic profile that is composed of cool and pure white flower, sea breeze and iodine nuances. There is lovely intensity but also good mid-palate stuffing that imparts a rounded palate impression to the saline-inflected finish. This should drink well young but also reward 4 to 6 years of cellar time."Allen Meadows 87-89 points
"Bright, pale yellow. Lemon, quinine and crushed stone on the nose. Silky and dense, with lovely cut to its rather austere lemon and mineral flavors. This incisive village wine shows excellent texture and length."International Wine Cellar 89-91 points
"From barrel, Vincent Dauvissat-s 2012 Chablis delivers a bracing sense of cut and brightness with its juicy alliance of fresh lemon, white currant and apple. The feel here is firm though subtly lees-enhanced, and when taken together with the wine-s prominent acids, almost a bit austere. Crushed stone and salt enhance a sense of invigoration and milk the salivary glands in a lingering finish. I suspect that this overachiever for its appellation will drink well through 2016."Wine Advocate 89-90 points
- 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
