2007 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses"

SKU #1044602 97 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2007 Dauvissat Les Preuses is a baby at the present time, but with the potential to be counted amongst the one or two greatest vintages of this great wine in the history of the domaine. The bouquet is deep, nascently complex and still quite primary in its mix of grapefruit, lemon, apple, beeswax, chalk and oyster white soil tones, spring flowers and just a hint of vanilla. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and racy, with a rock solid core of fruit, a nicely closed personality at the present time and simply profound length and grip on the soil-driven and extremely racy finish. A brilliant, brilliant wine. Inner quote mark (2/2009)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Early comparison of Vincent Dauvissat’s 2007 Chablis Preuses with his Les Clos is bound to flatter the former, as here is the essence of that mysteriously scallop-like, sweet, saline savor and a ravishing alliance of richness and textural creaminess with delicacy and refreshment such as you won’t often, if ever, find in another vineyard. Fresh lime, distilled herbal essences, orange oil, iris-like perfume, and honey waft from the nose; through a supremely elegant and dynamic mid-palate; to a finish that soars. No doubt 12-15 years of delight await those lucky enough to score some of this. (DS) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright lemon-yellow. Captivating soil-driven nose offers stone fruits, flowers, chlorophyll, clove, medicinal herbs and warm stones. The palate offers lovely perfumed lift to the vibrant lemon and powdered stone flavors; magically light on its feet in spite of its underlying richness. Perhaps best today on the compellingly long, mounting finish, which leaves the mouth pulsating with mineral-driven perfume. (ST) 95+ Inner quote mark (7/2009)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Initially this is still restrained but after only 10 minutes or so it becomes quite expressive with a nose that is airy, ripe, elegant and strikingly pure as it combines plenty of Chablis character that includes sea breeze, citrus and green fruit aromas that precede the delineated and equally pure flavors of stunning depth and intensity, all wrapped in a hugely long finish. Like the nose, the minerality seems subdued at first yet arrives in a real rush on the finale. A genuinely great wine that is a study in harmony and grace as well as one that should age effortlessly for many years. I have advanced the suggested drinking window by one year as this can already be drunk with pleasure even though it is still on the way up. In a word, stunning. Tasted twice since my initial review with consistent notes. Inner quote mark (6/2014)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh and concentrated, combining elegance and power. Grapefruit, honey, floral and mineral notes have depth and balance. Just a bit hot on the finish now, but with a great oyster shell finish. Needs a year or two. (BS, Web Only-2010) Inner quote mark
