2007 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "Vaillons"

SKU #1044603 93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2007 Vaillons is also brilliant, and is a noticeable step up from the superb Séchets. The bouquet is beautiful, as it delivers a complex mélange of lemon, grapefruit, chalk dust, paraffin, oyster shells, a hint of vanillin oak and a garden full of spring flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is fullish, deep and impressively complex out of the blocks, with a rock solid core of fruit, brilliant focus and cut and a stunningly long, transparent and racy finish. There is just stunning grip, length and purity on display in abundance in the 2007 Dauvissat Vaillons. Again, as fine an example of young Vaillons as I can recall tasting here. 93+ Inner quote mark (1/2009)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Dauvissat 2007 Chablis Vaillons leads with an aromatic combination of citrus oil, Mirabelle distillate, and honey that suggest a touch of noble botrytis. Honey-glazed, gingered lime, tangerine, pineapple, and yellow plum are lusciously allied on the palate with a sense of crushed stone and chalk I imagine straining through my teeth. Predictably, this is more adamant in its mineral character, more compact, and more overtly extract rich than the corresponding Sechet. But what it lacks in interplay or levity vis a vis that wine, it at least in part makes up for in layered density and sheer grip. (DS) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark There was virtually no change from the barrel sample with a nose that is exceptionally pure, expressive, bright and cool while putting on parade a pretty mix of citrus, floral and obvious spice aromas that complement to perfection the detailed, intense and relatively full-bodied flavors that retain an impressive sense of precision on the explosive and hugely long finish. Like the Séchet, the acid spine is quite firm and confers an agreeably bone dry sensation to the finish. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2009)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, pale yellow. Underripe pineapple, crushed stone, oyster shell and ginger on the nose; reminded me of a top dry riesling. The palate offers classic Vaillons volume, with an almost exotic quality giving early appeal to the concentrated flavors of ripe citrus fruits and wet stone. This rich but vibrant wine finishes with impressive length and grip. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2009)
