The 2016 Chablis comes from several parcels including La Forest on less favorably-exposed location and where the clay is slightly different. It has a perfumed bouquet that needs little encouragement from the glass: white citrus fruit, mirabelle and hints of chalk dust. The palate is very pretty with a fine bead of acidity, beautiful poise and impressive vigor. You can feel the mouth tingling long after the wine has departed thanks to the salinity, the senses discretely begging another sip. This may well surpass the 2015 and even challenge the 2014...it's that good. (NM)
Here the ripe and fresh nose displays a bit more Chablis typicity on the pear and white peach aromas. The suave, indeed even silky medium-bodied flavors possess slightly more size, weight and mid-palate concentration while delivering sneaky good length on the sappy and well-balanced finale. This should drink well young.
To the best of my recollection, the Chablis villages from Domaine Dauvissat was down about fifty percent in 2016. The wine is absolutely outstanding for its appellation offering up a pure and zesty bouquet of pear, lemon, chalky limestone minerality, citrus zest and a nice touch of oyster shell in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and absolutely rock solid at the core, with great cut and grip and a very long, complex and perfectly balanced finish. A beautiful wine. 2018-2040.
Pale, bright yellow. Classic citrus scents of lemon and grapefruit. At once sweeter, deeper and more energetic than the Petit Chablis, conveying an almost plush texture to its citrus fruit flavors. After the creamy middle, the finish is firm, taut and incisive. With its moderate acidity, this wine will drink well young but it will also have mid-term aging potential. (ST)
