2017 René et Vincent Dauvissat Chablis

A study in terroir across Chardonnay's most distinctive sites.
A strong case can be made that, of all the places where Chardonnay is grown, Chablis produces the most distinctive and unique wines. Even “village” wines from solid producers have a unique charm and minerality. But in the hands of a true master, working with old vines and elite vineyards, Chablis can scale heights unknown to other Chardonnay makers.

Such is the case with the wines of René & Vincent Dauvissat. Along with François Raveneau, Dauvissat is unquestionably Chablis’ greatest producer, owning some of the oldest and best vineyards, including prized sections of the permier crus, Le Forest and Vaillons.
Above all else, we pride ourselves on sourcing wines which express and transmit a sense of place. In this respect, DAUVISSAT HAS FEW EQUALS.
I’m proud to offer a range of Dauvissat's premier Crus and Village wines, from the classic and what is sure to be a long-lived vintage, 2017
La Fôrest Premier Cru -  Dauvissat is world-famous for his coveted grand crus. But insiders know of a hidden prize in his portfolio: premier cru La Forest. At half the price of the grand crus, La Forest is a near-equal, regularly achieving grand cru levels of expressiveness, depth and complexity.
**only 8 bottles available.

Vaillons Premier Cru - True Chablis in every sense: lemon verbena and lime blossom underpinned by a driving chalky minerality. One of the most expressive premier crus in Chablis. 
**only 8 bottles available.
Chablis - Sourced from a plot facing La Forest, giving it a honeyed richness not found in most village level chablis and the potential of a premier cru. Made in miniscule quanitities, these are often the rarest and hardest to find of all of Dauvissat’s wines.
**only 10 bottles available.

Petit Chablis - From a single plot above the greatest of the grand crus, Les Clos, sharing its full south exposure. It is typically the last of Dauvissat’s vineyards to be harvested, bringing the fruit to full ripeness. Nothing small about it! 
**only 12 bottles available.
