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 too there is enough wood to warrant mentioning present on the citrus-inflected white orchard fruit nose that displays just a bit more obvious Chablis character. I like the mouth feel of the attractively intense and beautifully textured middle weight flavors that also display focused power on the rich and palate coating finale. While I wouldn't describe this as a classic example of Preuses, it's certainly very pretty" Allen Meadow
