Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru, Vaillons Vielles Vignes 2019

  • Sold out

The Dauvissats have long bottled their oldest vines in Vaillons separately: 0.7 hectares worth of vines averaging 70 years of age in the Sur Vaillons lieu-dit. The “Vieilles Vignes” constitutes a notable step up in power and intensity from the regular Vaillons bottling, with a more unctuous texture and greater cling and length on the palate. Its élevage inverts the order of the basic bottling, with fermentation as well as the first year of aging taking place in barrels, and the second year spent in steel.

 In our opinion, the quality and expansiveness of this wine frequently elevates it to Grand Cru level; there is remarkable concentration and length and an impeccable expression of the grand terroir of Chablis. (From the importer)
