The Vincent Dauvissat 2011 Chablis Sechet delivers a striking sense of lift and transparency allied to infectious juiciness. Succulent and refreshing grapefruit, lime and yellow plum are wreathed in buddleia and high-toned herbal extracts, then mingled on a buoyant (almost delicate) and silken-textured palate with the saline-sweet savor of raw scallop. The saliva-inducing, umami-rich animal aspects are perfectly complemented by almost infinite juiciness of citrus and pit fruits that are transparent to seductively floral and shimmeringly crystalline-mineral nuances.

The 2011 Chablis 'Séchet' from Domaine Vincent Dauvissat is also an outstanding bottle in the making, jumping from the glass in a complex aromatic blend of pink grapefruit, lemon, green apple, chalky minerality, oyster shell, citrus peel and a topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, tight and classic, with a fine core of fruit, brisk acids and a very long, youthful and racy finish. This is a superb bottle of Séchet.
The 2011 Chablis Sechets emerges from the glass with beautiful scents of lime, oyster shell and grapefruit, all backed up by the richness and pure texture of the year. There is plenty of near and medium-term appeal in the Sechets, a wine that captures the very best qualities of the year. Over the last year, the Sechets has come together beautifully. (AG)
Brisk, high-pitched aromas of lemon, crushed stone and licorice, plus a faint lactic quality. Then dense, silky and generous in the mouth, but with terrific energy to its mineral-driven citrus zest and oyster shell flavors. This has a salinity much like the 2012 version. The long, mounting, classically dry finish calls for at least six or seven years of cellaring. In fact, I would not be at all surprised if this wine shut down in the bottle. (ST) 91+
This is not only more elegant but more complex and slightly riper as well with a much greater emphasis on the typical Séchet citrus elements. There is good richness to the round and relatively generous medium weight flavors that possess a seductively textured mouth feel. There is a lovely minerality and underlying tension to the very dry, balanced and persistent finish that displays a hint of bitter lemon. This should be quite good and offer solid mid-term cellaring potential.
