Domaine Dauvissat is a family estate that is among the most emblematic estates of Chablis. The Dauvissat estate has a remarkable terroir and produces some of the greatest white wines from Burgundy.

Arguably the finest address in Chablis. Vincent Dauvissat uses oak sparingly to add complexity and dimension to his piercingly mineral concentrated wines. Some of barriques are 30+ years old. They are wines that are rarely exotic in their youth, tight as a drum in fact, but with age (and they age by gracefully by the decade) as they evolve and develop into exciting and comprehensive wines of sophistication and interest.

Tasting Notes

92-95 Points Allen Meadows
A wonderfully broad-ranging nose is composed by restrained aromas of mineral reduction, floral, pear, apple and iodine scents. As is usually the case this is notably finer if less powerful, indeed the mouth feel of the cool middle weight flavors is almost delicate though this texture contrasts considerably with the lingering and strikingly complex finish that is, like the La Forest, almost chewy. This is one of the wines of the vintage though note well that patience will be required.

95-96 Points James Suckling
So flinty and mineral, with crushed stones and a wealth of lime peel, grapefruit pith and some white peaches in the mix, as well as strong, refined oyster-shell and iodine-like aromas. Super savory, though, with lemon pastry and almond meal. The palate has a very supple, smooth build of acidity, elevating white-peach, lime-sorbet and crushed-stone flavors. The late surge of spear-like minerals carries long and reveals the true length of this wine to come in time. Try from 2026.

95-97 Points Antonio Galloni
The 2018 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru is a wine of precision and power. Tightly wound and explosive, the 2018 possesses tremendous energy and tension that sizzles from start to finish. The combination of richness and austerity is so compelling. The 2018 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine.
