Tremendous bottle. Nose has massive mineral stank with meyer lemon and so many oyster shells. So saline. Deep and enveloping. The Chablis symphony in full effect. Stunning. Young a f on the palate but oh so promising. Perfect balance and terrific tension. Finish is clipped for now but this will grow with air. Luscious finish that is juicy, explosive and so textured. Lovely focus, linearity and hierarchy of flavors. I’ll be back as this airs. Amazing acid structure here. — 4 days ago
Wow. Awesome. A bit less rich than the 14. Just Great. Screaming mineral and stone fruit on the nose. Fruit and mineral with integrated richness on the palate. So alive. Just jumps at you. Finish is mineral and long. Just sweet minerals that cling to the palate like super glue. Finish is perfect. Like a roller coaster up (fruit) side (mineral) sideways (forward). Perfect balance between big flavors. A wine you can either gulp down or savor over an evening. Wow what a star. Bought from fass selections. ... if I had to do a two word tasting note it would be “Fucking magic”. Vaporizes $100 Côte d’Or. 25 - 35 or so. Wish I bought it all. — 3 years ago
Enjoyed this so much ( thanks Tom). Some apples and stones/ sea breeze. Just fresh. — 4 years ago
Nose has smashed chalk, old seashells, nondescript wood smoke, day old lime zest and cold lemon wedges.
Palate has gentle lime and lemon notes, oyster shell with tart apple lingering into the finish.
Another wonderful bottle of Chablis AC from Fabien. (91-92 points) — 22 days ago
Apples in rain. Minerally rocks dunked in lemon. Everything you want it to be. — 4 years ago
Crisp well balanced acidity with some flinty minerality on nose and palate. Still young but already showing lemon zest and Oyster shell. Creamy texture, long finish — 4 years ago
Excellent premier cru Chablis. High acidity and minerality. Chalk,wet stones with lemon and green apples although the fruit is subtle. — 3 years ago
To begin, a very nice Côte de Léchet, but I think that Jean Dauvissat does this 1er Cru best.
Nose is cooked lemon, lemon pith, light/wet limestone and under-ripe white peach.
Palate has fresh, steamed lemon, crunchy oyster shell soup and lemon curd (light).
Solid wine, plus 2016, nice QPR. — 3 years ago
Clean, mineral-driven, soft and round. Compared to the other premiere crushing from this producers this one seemed just a tad unfocused. Medium finish — 4 years ago
This rare beauty had immense tension on the palate. Minerality really is the protagonist here. Chalk and crushed shells emerge from the million years Jurassic soils to show that this is a serious piece of art that will live forever. Just like you feel when drinking Dauvissat, is like taking a surf trip to the most pristine and pure salty waters. Its salinity explodes as flavour and texture. Just like being underwater. A transparent representation of its place, and of true flawless natural and biodynamic wine. — 5 years ago
