We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

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 were happy to acquire small quantities of the 2013s.

"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 2016 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is showing particularly well from bottle, exhibiting aromas of lemon oil, white flowers, green apples and a light framing of reduction. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, glossy and textural, with excellent concentration, chewy structure and a long, intense finish. It's one 2016 that can go head to head with its 2017 counterpart.
