2017 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1412725 100 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru is a stunning wine that embodies all of the best qualities of Chablis today. A grand, sweeping wine, the Preuses possesses dramatic concentration and richness. And yet it remains so Chablis, so Dauvissat and so Preuses. All of the classic Preuses signatures of citrus, slate, sage, crushed rocks and mint literally explode into a finish of palate-staining weight and intensity. Vincent Dauvissat adds that this was the last fruit he picked in 2017. "I waited until the very end,'" he told me. "The fruit just wasn't ready before." The 2017 Preuses is a magical wine that will thrill those lucky enough to own it. In a word: heroic. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

98 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Dauvissat holdings touch La Moutonne but make a very different style to the Long-Depaquit wine. Fine, delicate and subtle, this lightly wooded grand cru takes your breath away with its focus, poise, and its thrilling length. Drinking Window 2024-2035. (TA) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

97 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark There was just a touch of frost damage in the domaine’s holdings in les Preuses in 2017, so the yields here were down by ten percent. The wine is brilliant, offering up a deep and enormously complex nose of grapefruit, tart pear, green apple, a kaleidoscopic base of chalky and oyster shell minerality, orange peel, a whisper of vanillin oak and an exotic, savory topnote that is redolent of fresh tarragon! On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, racy and absolutely rock solid at the core, with great detail and complexity. The finish is very, very long, youthfully reserved and vibrant, with laser-like focus and great grip. A magical les Preuses in the making, but give it some time in the cellar to really blossom. Drink from 2026-2075. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Vincent Dauvissat's 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses is extraordinary, blossoming in the glass with aromas of orange blossom, smoky oyster shell and wet stones, followed by a full-bodied, satiny and searingly chalky palate that's strikingly multidimensional, pure and precise, with a bright spine of acidity and a long, resonating finish. From barrel, I described this wine as the "essence of rocks," and from bottle, I wrote exactly the same words. (WK) 97+ Inner quote mark (8/2019)

96-97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very ripe peaches and yellow citrus with a wealth of flinty aromas that really reflect this stunning terroir. Intense white peppers here. Complex and super mineral with a very deep and dense palate. Elegant with power. Stunning. Incredible exuberant style. A regal, commanding Chablis! Inner quote mark (7/2018)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark The barest hint of the exotic can be found on the citrusy pear and green apple aromas that display an abundance of classic Chablis characters. Once again the mouth feel of the medium weight plus flavors is strikingly pure and refined with outstanding intensity while the copious dry extract does an impeccable job of buffering the firm acid spine shaping the gorgeously long finish. This is, in a word, terrific. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

K&L Notes

93-96 points from Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Clear bright colour, a luxury nose, the woolly cashmere aspect of Preuses in the best sense. Rounded ripe fruit wants to emerge. A generous ripeness last to be picked, but what a huge and glorious weight to it. Was backward throughout the growing season. Picked much later than his neighbours." (05/2018)
