2009 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses"

SKU #1065250 96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale yellow. Musky, slightly high-toned aromas of lemon, lavender, hazelnut and white pepper, complicated by suggestions of earth and toast. Sappy and densely packed but youthfully imploded; less glyceral today than the Forest and Vaillons but boasts explosive minerality and outstanding inner-mouth lift. The chewy, extremely long finish perfumes the taste buds with citrus peel, flowers and spices. A superb and very ripe example of this grand cru. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2011)

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Tasting note: Here the nose is superbly complex still with a strikingly nuanced array of green fruit, sea breeze, iodine and wet stone aromas that complement perfectly the detailed, intense and palate drenching flavors that culminate in an explosive, salty and dry finish. As it almost always is chez Dauvissat, what really distinguishes this wine from the others in the range is the Zen-like sense of harmony. In a word, beautiful. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Chablis Les Preuses reveals a rich fabric of finely spun fruit. There is a silkiness and finesse to the Preuses that is hard to fully capture with words. White flowers, mint and citrus peel are some of the nuances that come together in this beautifully articulated, complete Chablis. The round, harmonious finish points to many years of very fine drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2029. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

K&L Notes

From the importer: "One of Chablis' most prestigious proprietors, René Dauvissat, with his son Vincent, farms nearly twenty-three acres of meticulously kept vineyards, all in Premier Cru appellations. These vines (4.5 acres of Vaillons, 2 of Sechets, and 9.4 of Forets among the Premiers Crus, 2.5 of Preuses and 4.5 of Clos among the Grands Crus) are splendidly sited on hillsides underlain by Jurassic limestone. Yields are limited to about 50 hectoliters per hectare, modest by the standards of the region."
