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.
Region/Country: Burgundy, France
Tasting Notes: This is a recent release from the winery and is in perfect condition. The Saint Pierre cuvée is vinified from a selection of Vaillons, bottled after two years of aging (one year in vats, one year in barrels). It is characterized by its great maturity and its pleasant roundness. This wine is refined and shows immediate fresh citrus and white peach notes. There is a touch of heft due to some time on the lees. More lemon and minerals appear on the finish of this elegant Chablis.
