Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "The palate is extremely well-balanced with razor-sharp acidity you could cut your finger on. Beautifully poised with bags of spice on the finish, this is one powerful Les Preuses – one of the finest grand crus of the vintage. (NM)" 94 points Burghound "...notably cool aromas that are like being at the sea shore and include subtle notes of white flowers, oyster shell, mineral reduction and pear. There is impressive size, weight and richness to the dense and mouth coating flavors that retain a wonderful sense of refinement before culminating in a salty and silky finish that seems just to go on and on; it's that persistent. As it almost always is, this is Zen-like in its harmony. In a word, wonderful. (AM)"

About Vincent Dauvissat

Vincent Dauvissat is one of Chablis’ most celebrated domaines. Although in existence since the 1920s, the estate began earning its stellar reputation in the 1970s, when René came to work alongside his father, Robert. Today, René’s son, Vincent, sustainably farms 12 hectares of the appellation’s prime terroirs, including the premier cru vineyards of Vaillons, La Forêt, Séchets, Montée de Tonnerre and the grand cru vineyards of Les Preuses and Les Clos—all situated on the region’s highly prized Kimmeridgian limestone. In addition, Vincent bottles under the Dauvissat-Camus label for certain markets, although both labels represent the exact same wines.

In the cellars, the motto at Dauvissat could easily be, “slow and steady wins the race.” Vincent starts with slow, natural vinifications in enamel cuves, where the wine remains for up to year, followed by a racking into six-to-eight-year Nevers oak barrels. Oak aging in Chablis is a rarity these days, but Vincent’s older barrels serve to imbue the wines with depth, structure and greater age-ability, without imparting oak’s unmistakable flavor profile. With elegant texture, a penetrating minerality and depth of character, the wines chez Dauvissat are as long-lived in the cellar as they are on the palate.
