Domaine Vincent Dauvissat

The address for elemental Chablis – Vincent makes indescribably fine, nuanced Chablis, brimming with nervosité, demonstrating extraordinary length with finely detailed terroir expression. With over 35 vintages already to his name, Vincent Dauvissat remains for many a model: modest, passionate and deeply informed about his region and his craft, energetically seeking, year after year, to capture an appellation truthfulness which owes nothing to passing Chardonnay fashions elsewhere.

“Raveneau or Vincent Dauvissat? Cognoscenti seem to be split about which of these growers represent the pinnacle of Chablis…these Chablis seem to be sculpted by the earth itself, exquisitely balanced and with more minerality than almost all of their peers.” Neal Martin
