The 2009 Dauvissat Les Clos is every bit a match for the surreal Les Preuses. The flawless bouquet offers up scents of green apples, grapefruit, a touch of young Chablis’ green fruit tones, a brilliant base of flinty minerality, smoky notes, dried flowers and wet stones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and absolute rock solid at the core, with a very racy chassis of acidity, laser-like focus and a brilliant, snappy and nearly endless finish. Stunning juice. (Drink between 2018-2045) 96+
The 2009 Chablis Les Clos is inward, cool and impeccably precise. It presents a chiseled, sculpted expression of fruit, then blossoms on the mid-palate and finish as the voice of the year comes through. The 2009 is a relatively open, radiant Les Clos that should offer rewarding drinking fairly early for this cuvee. It is drop-dead gorgeous from start to finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. (AG)
An overtly floral and distinctly cool nose features subtle spice and mineral reduction aromas that are followed by rich, powerful and broad-scaled yet quite finely detailed and pure flavors that are underpinned by a firm acid spine and an intensely citrus-infused finish. Even though 2009 in general is not a great terroir vintage, this could not be mistaken for anything but great Chablis.
Pale lemon-yellow. Shy nose shows strong wet stone minerality lifted by a lavender topnote. Wonderfully ripe but quite backward; in a massive and muscular style for Clos. The powerful lemon, grapefruit and stone flavors saturate the palate on the very long back end, but this very closed wine will need a good seven or eight years to express itself. Like the Forest and the Preuses, this wine clearly expresses its terroir in spite of the strong vintage signature. (ST) 95+
Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of talc and dusty stone along with slightly exotic notes of orange zest, grilled almond and pralines plus a whiff of fresh vegetables. Silky, fine-grained and voluminous--a bit in the style of the '89--offering subtle notes of citrus peel, fresh herbs, gunflint and salty minerality. Gives a greater impression of sweetness than many of the more austere vintages shown at this tasting. This silky, fairly full, seamless wine finishes very long, with its alcohol--and sweetness--nicely buffered by its tactile dry extract. (alcohol between 13% and 13.5%; lower in acidity than the 2010, but still with good force due to what Dauvissat described as 'less malic conversion'; 50 h/h produced) (ST)
