Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru La Forest is the deepest and most complete of Dauvissat's premiers crus, delivering a complex bouquet of orange oil, pear and fresh bread complemented by top notes of iodine, dried white flowers and beeswax. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it's layered and concentrated, with superb mid-palate volume, lively acids and a long, electric finish. (WK)" 93 points Burghound "A less elegant but more complex nose reflects plenty of Chablis typicity with its nose of spiced apple, sea breeze, tidal pool, ripe citrus and a touch of the exotic. There is excellent volume to the intense and muscular flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality before concluding in a bitter lemon and anise-suffused finish that offers just a bit more depth. Like the Montee de Tonnerre, this very powerful effort should be capable of rewarding up to a decade of cellaring. (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.
