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.
Rating: 90-91 Points by James Suckling
Region/Country: Burgundy, France
Tasting Notes: This is held on a reductive edge with refined, contained and certainly fresh citrus notes. The palate has very rich and assertive limes and white peaches. Very long, gently mealy and composed. More fruit than minerals, but very taut and refined for AC Chablis. Drink on release. Sustainable farming practices.
