Vincent Dauvissat is one of Chablis' most prestigious and sought-after estates. He farms nearly 23 acres of meticulously kept vineyards, all in Premier Cru appellations. These vines are splendidly sited on hillsides underlain by Jurassic limestone which give the wines incredible terroir. Yields are low, all picking is done by hand and the wines are known to age for decades. A loyal following among France's most esteemed restaurateurs and wine merchants sharply limits the availability of Dauvissat wines for export so we are always happy to acquire small quantities.

"This talented winemaker makes it look almost too easy, routinely turning out intensely flavored, incisive wines that manage to be both accurate to their terroir and long on personality. While the wines can be austere in their youth, they have a track record of aging superbly." Stephen Tanzer on Vincent Dauvissat, International Wine Cellar

A fresh, bracing version, offering lemon, apple and light spice flavors. Clean and expressive, this picks up a mineral element as it builds to a long finish. Fine intensity. Drink now through 2028. 87 cases imported.

Wafting from the glass with aromas of golden orchard fruit, honey comb, confit citrus, oatmeal and crisp green apple, Dauvissat's 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a generous core of fruit, lively acids, and a long, saline finish. This is an unusually demonstrative, fruit-driven Vaillons from Dauvissat, though it does retain plenty of Chablisien character.

The 2018 Chablis Vaillons offers a racy, mineral-laced, even salty style that has lots of pear and stone fruits as well as notes of white flowers, iodine, and honeysuckle. Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it has good (maybe not great) concentration, racy yet integrated acidity, and beautiful balance. Again, the minerality and salinity on the palate are something, and it benefits markedly from air, showing at its best on day two. A solid 3-4 years of bottle age are warranted, and it should evolve for a decade or more.
