Domaine Rene et Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 2015


SKU 01678


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 sharply limits the availability of Dauvissat wines for export so we are alwaus happy to acquire small quantities of new vintages.

"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

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chablis Villages has a refined and well defined bouquet with hints of yellow flower permeating the citrus fruit, tightly coiled at first, but unfolding in the glass. The palate is well balanced, harnessing the precocity of the vintage, but keeping everything controlled by the acidity; it is a little resinous towards the finish, which delivers a spine-tingling lemongrass tang. As good a village cru as you will find in this vintage.
