Over the years, I have had some beautiful bottles of Chablis villages from Domaine Dauvissat, but the 2015 may well be the best yet! The wine jumps from the glass in a vibrant blend of lemon, apple, pink grapefruit, superb minerality, beeswax and a topnote of white lilies. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very racy in personality (particularly for a 2015!), with a fine core, superb backend minerality and a long, zesty finish that is already showing the first hints of the candied lemon peel that will arrive with bottle age. This is premier cru quality without a doubt this year. (Drink between 2016-2035)
Pale yellow. Tighter on the nose than the Petit Chablis, offering aromas of lemon, menthol and mint. More classic in the middle palate than the Petit Chablis, with penetrating lemon zest fruit and strong stony minerality giving the wine terrific verve. This very incisive village wine is not ready to drink. Drink 2019 - 2025. (ST)
Here too there is admirable purity to the exuberantly fresh and bright nose of pear, tidal pool and soft floral aromas that are trimmed in an interesting hint of menthol. The middle weight flavors are tighter and more focused with good tension that extends to the rich, sappy and saline-inflected finale. This should drink well early on if desired though I would suggest allowing it a few years of bottle age in order to develop a bit more depth. Recommended.
