Explosive and ultra complex nose upon the first pour from the decanter. Really raring to go. I must say for Raveneau I prefer ‘08 over ‘07 but for Dauvissat it’s a much closer race, and this electric ‘07 supports that notion.
It’s such a classic vintage for Dauvissat with its oyster shell minerality, sea spray salinity and an attractive algae like savoriness, all backed a bright lemony acid spine. It has all the elements you’d hope for in this Grand Cru. An incredible combination of power and elegance, elite midpalate depth and a finish that goes on and on. Proving again to be true, I continue to prefer Preuses over Clos in most vintages. — 8 hours ago
They did it again. This wine just inches out the Alpenglow rose with perfectly balanced acidity, but this time with even more fruit flavors. The St. Vincent has finesse and elegence that leaves no doubt about its quality. — 20 days ago
Beautiful Beaujolais cru with Burgundian style. Bright macerated notes of cherry, raspberry. Infused caractere with nuances of liquorice, dried flowers and spices. Light on the attack, the final would tend towards the mid-bodied, with a nice concentration and complexity on a final with finely persistent mineral and tannins shades supported by partial oak aging that brings a lot of class.
Superbe cru du Beaujolais aux allures bourguignonnes. Notes vives de cerise, framboise macérées. Caractère infusé avec des nuances de réglisse, de fleurs séchées et épices. Léger de prime abord, la finale tendrait vers le mi-corsé, avec une belle concentration et complexité sur une finale aux nuances minérales et tanins finement persistants soutenus par un élevage partiel en fût qui apporte beaucoup de classe. Potentiel de garde 7-10 ans. — 4 days ago
Lovely nose. Cherries galore. Spice and loads of minerals. Mid season cherries perfectly expressed. Palate is full of fruit and has great purity. Lovely structure, sap and refinement. Needs some air to fill in the gaps but all in all a lovey bottle. — 2 days ago

This wine comes laser focused out of the glass with clean bright oak flavor and then develops from there. Really enjoyed this — 4 days ago
