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: "Here the nose is compositionally similar to the Vaillons save for the addition of an exotic fruit note. The palate impression of the bigger and richer flavors is, somewhat curiously given the increase in size and weight, finer and even more seductively textured, all wrapped in a sappy and lingering finish where a hint of bitter lemon is present. This should reward 5 to 7 years of cellar time." Allen Meadow
