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: "I very much like the freshness of the citrus and green apple-scented nose that displays background notes of matchstick character, algae and oyster shell. The mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavors is at once caressing yet reasonably precise with good punch and minerality that carries over to the clean, bone dry and lemon-inflected finish. This is a wine that should reward mid-term cellaring." (Allen Meadow)
