The 2015 Séchet from Vincent Dauvissat is also excellent this year. The bouquet is bright nascently complex and quite expressive, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, orange zest, paraffin, chalky minerality, just a touch of grapefruit and spring flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, complex and simply rock solid at the core, with superb backend cut and grip. Excellent juice. (Drink between 2016-2040) 92+ points
(there will be one last bottling of this wine, before Christmas): Much more about terroir than Chardonnay fruit on the nose, conveying scents of lemon, dried fruits, praline and almost medicinal menthol. Very rich and broad but almost austere, offering a wonderfully fine-grained texture but little in the way of easy sweetness. Finishes very long and taut, with noteworthy nervosité for the year. (ST)
A mild hint of exotic fruit characterizes the nose of honeysuckle and citrus peel along with plenty of iodine and seaweed hints that are also trimmed in a whiff of menthol. There is more volume and richness to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess a caressing mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced, clean and markedly dry finale where a hint of bitter lemon arises. I would allow this sneaky long effort at least a few years of cellaring though once again it could be approached young.
