One of the very best producers in Chablis, Vincent Dauvissat's grandfather started bottling the estate's wines back in the 1930s, and his purchases helped to take the domaine to their current total of around 12 hectares of premier and grand cru sites.
Everything is picked by hand and aged in old oak, including the village Chablis, which is a great introduction to the Dauvissat style. The premier crus of Vaillons and La Forest are notable for their linearity and tension, while Les Clos is a grand cru site that delivers a broader and more opulent wine, counterpointed by signature Chablis freshness.
Since 2017 was a five star vintage in the region the wines will continue to cellar well, but these are also giving real pleasure now. Pour yourself a glass and enjoy, or decant these for an hour (yes really) to allow their full complexity to emerge. All the wines show fine aromas of honey, salt, chalk dust, gentle yellow apple fruit and a vibrant, mouthwatering purity.
Perfect with some dressed crab, grilled scallops or a platter of fruits de mer.
