Jean Dauvissat, and his son Sebastian, are the most recent in an extended line of the Dauvissat family that has been in possession of this notable domaine since 1899. The cave is positioned under the family house which dates from the 17th century and where the road to the hamlet of Chichée begins.
Sebastien Dauvissat works a two hectare parcel of vines at the village level. The vineyards are situated on the “back side” of the 1er Crus. The soil here is infused with a particularly high percentage of limestone which permits this cuvée to make a clear statement of its origins.

Tasting Notes: "The 2017 Chablis Vaillons Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru is pretty, gracious and lifted, with a real sense of vertical expansiveness. In this vintage, the Vieilles Vignes is wonderfully lifted in feel. Sweet floral notes, apricot and tropical fruits meld together in a layered, exquisite Chablis that has much to offer."
