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

100 Points Antonio Galloni
The 2017 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru is a stunning wine that embodies all of the best qualities of Chablis today. A grand, sweeping wine, the Preuses possesses dramatic concentration and richness. And yet it remains so Chablis, so Dauvissat and so Preuses. All of the classic Preuses signatures of citrus, slate, sage, crushed rocks and mint literally explode into a finish of palate-staining weight and intensity. Vincent Dauvissat adds that this was the last fruit he picked in 2017. “I waited until the very end,'” he told me. “The fruit just wasn’t ready before.” The 2017 Preuses is a magical wine that will thrill those lucky enough to own it. In a word: heroic.

97 Points James Suckling
Very ripe peaches and yellow citrus with a wealth of flinty aromas that really reflect this stunning terroir. Intense white peppers here. Complex and super mineral with a very deep and dense palate. Elegant with power. Stunning. Incredible exuberant style. A regal, commanding Chablis!

97 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Vincent Dauvissat’s 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses is extraordinary, blossoming in the glass with aromas of orange blossom, smoky oyster shell and wet stones, followed by a full-bodied, satiny and searingly chalky palate that’s strikingly multidimensional, pure and precise, with a bright spine of acidity and a long, resonating finish. From barrel, I described this wine as the “essence of rocks,” and from bottle, I wrote exactly the same words.
