2012 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis

SKU #1377618 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Menthol and lemon on the nose. Dry, saline and serious in the mouth, with a point of austerity to the incisive flavors of citrus peel, minerals and jasmine. Finishes with terrific lemon-limey cut and noteworthy length. These vines are planted 'across from La Forest,' noted Dauvissat, but are considerably younger: 20 to 25 years of age vs. 50+. A superb village wine. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark As is typically the case chez Dauvissat this displays even more Chablis character with a completely different aromatic profile that is composed of cool and pure white flower, sea breeze, mineral reduction and iodine nuances. There is lovely intensity but also good mid-palate stuffing that imparts a rounded palate impression to the saline-inflected finish. This terrific effort should drink well young but also reward 4 to 6 years of cellar time. Recommended. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2014)

90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark Some of the 2012 Chablis AC was still in barrel at the time of my late November visit and we happily tasted this wine from barrel. The wine is more closed on the nose than the Petit Chablis, but offers up scents of grapefruit, tart orange, flinty minerality and a topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and shows off a nice sense of reserve on the attack, with a succulent core and very good backend minerality and grip on the long and classy finish. This too will drink well from the outset, but possesses such lovely balance that it should also age very well indeed. (Drink between 2014-2030) 90+ Inner quote mark (11/2013)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Chablis stands out for its density, depth and balance. Far from an easygoing Chablis, the 2012 is a wine of real texture. Lemon oil, white flowers and mint meld together effortlessly in this resonant, highly expressive Chablis from Vincent Dauvissat. The 2012 will drink well early, but it also has more than enough stuffing to age gracefully for years. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Chablis is a step up from the Petit Chablis in terms of intensity, armed with chalk and flint scents emerging from the glass with gusto, fresh dewy green apple following behind. The palate is well-balanced and fresh in the mouth with vibrant citrus fruit mingling with freshly cut lime and a touch of peach. Nice and taut on the finish, this is a superb Chablis. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2014)
