The wines of Domaine Vincent Dauvissat are known for their purity, minerality, complexity, and longevity. They express the terroir of Chablis with elegance and finesse and have become ever more popular in recent years as the style is perfectly in tune with modern palates and the desire for pure and refined whites. This selection is perfect for those wishing to experience Dauvissat across a variety of cuvees, vintages and with varying degrees of maturity.

95 points William Kelley
A brilliant rendition of Vincent Dauvissat’s emblematic premier cru, the 2017 Chablis 1er Cru La Forest reveals a complex bouquet of oyster shell, crisp green apple and lemon oil mingled with notes of dried white flowers and freshly baked bread. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and complete, with a deep and concentrated core, striking energy and cut and a long, mineral finish. Amounting to some 4.5 hectares, La Forest accounts for a third of the domaine’s surface area, so it will be the easiest Dauvissat wine for readers to find. Happily, it ranks alongside the 2014 and 2008 as one of the very best of recent years

2018 Vincent Dauvissat, Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru
1cs (12*75cl OC) @ £3,950 per case in bond
95+ points William Kelley
Aromas of pear, green apple and citrus oil mingling with hints of fresh bread and oyster shell introduce Dauvissat’s 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, a full-bodied, layered wine that’s ample and elegantly muscular, girdled by bright acids and revealing more overt structure than Les Preuses at this stage. Concluding with a long, chalky finish, even in the demonstrative 2018 vintage, this will merit a bit of patience

2018 Vincent Dauvissat, Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru
1cs (6*75cl OC) @ £850 per case in bond
92 points William Kelley
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

2019 Vincent Dauvissat, Chablis
2cs (12*75cl OC) @ £880 per case in bond
92 points William Kelley
Introducing the 2019 Chablis are aromas of beeswax, dried white flowers and oyster shell dominating youthfully discreet notions of citrus oil and fresh bread in an already complex bouquet. A medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping wine, this is fleshier and more textural than its Petit Chablis counterpart—though it’s just as chiseled—concluding with a long, saline finish.
2019 Vincent Dauvissat, Chablis Montee de Tonnere 1er Cru
1cs (12*75cl OC) @ £3,250 per case in bond
94 points Allen Meadows ‘Outstanding’
A vague hint of the exotic is present on the wonderfully elegant lemony white orchard fruit scented nose that reflects additional notes of mineral reduction and oyster shell. The notably finer medium-bodied flavors possess excellent punch on the mineral-driven and chiseled finish that goes on and on. This is lovely and while it too will need better depth, the aging curve is sufficiently promising that I am optimistic that more complexity will develop over the next decade. In a word, terrific

2021 Vincent Dauvissat, Chablis La Forest 1er Cru
4cs (12*75cl OC) @ £1,800 per case in bond
2cs (6*75cl OC) @ £900 per case in bond

There is a hint of phenolic character on the aromas of crushed leaf, mineral reduction, lemon-lime and seaweed. The denser, succulent and powerful larger-scaled flavors are supported by a firm acid spine on the stony, youthfully austere and bitter citrus rind finale. This is quite dry and I very much like the balance though I would note that at least some patience is strongly suggested as this is quite tightly wound today. In a word, terrific.
