2012 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "Vaillons"

SKU #1464461 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Another breathtaking wine, the 2012 Chablis Vaillons blasts across the palate with stunning depth, resonance and pure voluptuousness. Honey, apricot pit, peach and sweet floral notes meld together in a wine of pure grace. Today, the Vaillons is nearly impossible to miss for its raciness, but should also age very, very well. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

Outer quote mark A cool, pure and restrained nose only grudgingly reveals its layered combination of citrus, floral, lemon zest, pepper and iodine-inflected aromas. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension to the impressively intense and markedly saline flavors that deliver excellent persistence on the mouth coating, clean and markedly dry finish. This attractive effort should drink well early as there is plenty of extract, though reward extended cellaring as well. Inner quote mark (10/2014)

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2012 Vaillons from Domaine Dauvissat is a quite forward in personality, but certainly not short of complexity or precision. The really lovely nose wafts from the glass in a mix of tangerine, sweet grapefruit, chalky minerality, citrus zest, spring flowers and a hint of the beeswax to come. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite succulent on the attack, with a good core, crisp acids and lovely cut and grip on the more overtly mineral finish. I suspect that this wine will become more defined by its minerality as the gorgeous, puppy fat fruit recedes a bit with bottle age, and the wine is certainly beautifully balanced and likely to age long and gracefully. (Drink between 2014-2035) 91+ Inner quote mark (11/2013)
