2010 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos"

SKU #1086738 98 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The utterly brilliant 2010 Dauvissat les Clos looks at this early stage to be even a small step up from the magical les Preuses. The profoundly complex nose soars from the glass in a mélange of grapefruit, tart orange, crystalline minerality, white flowers, wet stones, orange peel, white flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure, with a rock solid core of fruit, stunning transparency, brisk acids and laser-like focus on the perfectly balanced, hauntingly mineral and endless finish. Just a brilliant, brilliant young bottle of Chablis. Drink between 2018-2050. Inner quote mark (12/2011)

97 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright pale yellow. Precise, high-pitched nose offers lemon peel, crushed stone, white pepper and metallic minerality; more expressive today than the Preuses. Wonderfully pure, silky and incisive but youthfully closed on the palate, showing great concentration of bracing grapefruit and lemon fruit (tonic youth!). Not an overly powerful style but the spectacularly long finish leaves the retronasal passage quivering with juniper, floral and resin nuances. (ST) 97+ Inner quote mark (7/2012)

96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Compared to the Preuses, this is more obviously floral and stonier as well with its cool, pure and equally classic green fruit, mineral reduction and oyster shell nose. The powerful medium-bodied flavors exude plenty of dry extract that confers a sappy texture upon the strikingly complex mid-palate though the saline suffused cuts-like-a-knife finish is chiseled, explosive and massively long. This is textbook Les Clos with size, power and explosive energy and offers a remarkable contrast to the Zen-like Preuses where its harmony and understatement are its primary strengths. One can admire both, but either way, they are impressive as hell. Inner quote mark (9/2012)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Veins of saline minerality support expressive fruit in the 2010 Chablis Les Clos. White peaches, slate, smoke, crushed rocks and salt are all quite vivid in the glass. It is hard to resist the Clos today, as the fruit is so silky and delineated, yet at the same time it is quite clear the wine has the potential to evolve beautifully in bottle for many, many years. The 2010 is all about silkiness and precision. Today, it has a little less overt ripeness and weight next to the Preuses. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2012)
