2015 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Petite Chablis

SKU #1307468 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 There is ample Chablis character to the cool and admirably pure aromas that are composed of ripe and fresh apple, citrus and sea breeze nuances. The delicious, racy and lightly mineral-inflected flavors possess an attractive mouth feel while delivering fine depth and length in the context of what is typical for the genre. This is quite dry for the vintage and worth a look.  (10/2017)

John Gilman

 There cannot be any finer examples of Petit Chablis in 2015 than this really lovely wine from Vincent Dauvissat and his children. The wine is crisp, vibrant and just exudes charm on both the nose and palate, as it offers up a classy bouquet of lemon, pear, chalky soil tones, spring flowers and a topnote of beeswax. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, crisp and classy, with a very impressive core for its level, bright acids and excellent focus and grip on the long and energetic finish. (Drink between 2016-2025)  (12/2016)

Vinous

 Bright, light yellow. Very ripe aromas of lemon cream, marzipan and truffle; smells like a pastry. Creamy on entry, then tightly wound and brisk in the mid-palate, with its concentrated lemon and mineral flavors showing a repeating note of pastry shell. Finishes surprisingly taut, with notes of truffle and oatmeal. This very ripe, dense Petit Chablis is a touch topheavy; the alcohol here is 13.3%, the highest of Dauvissat's 2015s. (ST)  (8/2017)

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, M√Ęcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Chablis

- The region north of the Cote d'Or, famous for its steely dry white wines made from Chardonnay. There are 7 Grands Crus vineyards, and numerous Premier Crus. Unfortunately, the name has been borrowed and badly abused by producers of inferior white wines in the US as well as in Australia. True French Chablis is a delicate, stony, crisp Chardonnay, bearing no resemblance to the anonymous plonk so labeled here.
