2015 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos"

SKU #1307465 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Very rich and bold, full-bodied and weighty. Superb concentration with integrated acidity and extract that dominates the fruit at present. Spicy, structured, and very long, with fine ageing potential. (SB) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The Dauvissat domaine’s 2015 les Clos is an outstanding bottle in the making, but this year the les Preuses may have just nosed it out for first place in the cellar. The bouquet is young, complex and beautiful, delivering a blend of apple, pear, beeswax, chalky, flinty minerality, lemon zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and nicely reserved in profile, with an excellent core, bright acids, lovely energy and an impressive sense of reserve on the very, very long, snappy and extremely well-balanced finish. Inner quote mark (12/2016)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos seems to be the most closed of all the 2015s, even after two days of being open in bottle. It only reluctantly reveals oyster shell, quince, baking powder and flint scents. It is exquisitely defined. The palate is very well balanced with a lightly-honeyed opening, a keen thread of acidity and a subtle dash of spice that becomes more prominent towards the poised and elegant finish. What a beautiful les Clos that will vie with Vincent's les Preuses for supremacy. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright, light yellow. Extremely closed nose hints at leesy oatmeal and crushed rock; much less expressive and more monolithic today than the Preuses. Densely packed, sappy and youthfully austere in the mouth, hinting at incipient sweetness but showing very little today. At once spicier and less floral than the Preuses, this imposing wine conveys a strong wet stone character and terrific lemony lift. Powerful in dry extract and as backward as any 2015 Chablis I tasted this spring. (ST) 94+ Inner quote mark (8/2017)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Notes of mineral reduction combine with curiously minty aromas of citrus, pear and acacia blossom. As is usually the case the broad-shouldered flavors are more intense and powerful than those of the Preuses while displaying an almost aggressive salinity on the strikingly persistent, sappy and palate staining finale that evidences plenty of citrus zest character. This moderately structured effort will require at least some patience. Inner quote mark (10/2017)
