2019 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1522308 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Introducing the 2019 Chablis are aromas of beeswax, dried white flowers and oyster shell dominating youthfully discreet notions of citrus oil and fresh bread in an already complex bouquet. A medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping wine, this is fleshier and more textural than its Petit Chablis counterpart—though it's just as chiseled—concluding with a long, saline finish. Technically retired but very much a continuing presence at his eponymous domaine, Vincent Dauvissat—who forsook a career as a shepherd to become one of France's most celebrated vignerons—couldn't disguise his satisfaction as we tasted his recently bottled 2019 portfolio. After some discussion, we settled on the 1989 vintage ("but tighter and more incisive") as a possible analogy for 2019's hyper-concentrated, ripe, but all the while classically Chablisien style. In any case, they're some of the wines of the vintage and are well worth seeking out. Readers will remember that farming here is organic but without certification. The harvest is by hand, and the wines ferment in tank before racking to barrel with the lees (Raveneau's Chablis, by contrast, are racked to barrel more or less without their lees), spending a second winter in wood before bottling. A first bottling, destined for the American market, sees a light filtration; a second bottling—some of which is sealed with wax, some of which sees a foil capsule and some of which is sold under the Dauvissat-Camus label—will come out a little later(WK) Inner quote mark (8/2021)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Chablis Village has an intriguing nutty and slightly smoky bouquet. The palate is lively on the entry, with a superb line of acidity, and quite saline in the mouth, leading to a brisk, energetic finish. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here too there is very fine typicity with its ripe but cool nose of white peach, pear, iodine and pretty floral nuances that also include a whiff of citrus confit. There is equally fine volume to the rich yet well-detailed flavors that flash a lovely mineral streak on the refreshingly dry finale. Good stuff in a robust and powerful style that should repay mid-term aging. *Burhound Outstanding!* Inner quote mark (10/2021)

Pale green with a fresher nose than the Petit Chablis. Huge energy at the front of the palate, then, some almond paste aromatics followed by a slight suggestion of the warmth of the vintage at the finish. Generous in style this year, but still enough of the crystalline character to pass muster. Tasted: July 2020."
