Having selected Raveneau Valmur of the same vintage the prior night I thought it’d be fun to compare Dauvissat’s Clos. Also with a requested pre-dinner decant, it’s classic in style, seamlessly balanced between power and elegance and highly aromatic with layers of yellow orchard fruit, citrus blossoms, beeswax and stony minerals. The palate is rich, but not as weighty and textural as the Raveneau was, but instead shows great purity and focus with racy citrusy acids, a sea spray-like salinity and a long mineral inflicted finale. Excellent. — 9 days ago
Pop and pour. Notes from 24 hrs open. Better on Day 2. The nose shows lots of sweet apple and soft lemon (no reductive notes), soft mint and a touch of va. Good acidity on the palate where there is loads of lemon, wet stone and apple, together with a touch of white pepper. Good density and a vibrant finish, but just not nearly as compelling aromatically as earlier vintages. — a month ago
Wow! The value of this... 17 EUR a bottle, delivery to Poland from France included. This is a steal!
A gorgeous nose of cherry, wet soil, geranium, licorice... This is intense. The palate shows perfect balance with a nice and long acid backbone, some width and a great, almost crunchy texture with a soft mouthfeel that turns into a turbulent sea in midpalate, with tannins sharpening a bit and giving it another layer. The finish is fruit forward, almost umami, with that layer of turbulences gently brushing up that bright fruit to make it a truly enjoyable tasting experience. That's why you love cru Beaujolais... — 4 days ago
Floral fragrance initially. Cherry became apparent on palate with air. Nice evenness. August 2022. — a month ago
