Chablis Premier Cru 'Vaillons' 2018 Domaine Jean Dauvissat Magnum
Domaine Jean Dauvissat 1er Cru ‘Vaillions’ is a superb and robust Chablis with an almost perfect balance of ripe fruit and classic minerality. There are lovely spice notes behind the apple and mouth-watering lemon fruit which dominate the palate. The wine finishes with a saline twist, crushed lime and dry stone. It is a wine of immense character and complexity and a particularly full bodied expression of Chablis.
The Domaine is run by Jean’s grandson Fabien. Fabien is a young and extremely talented winemaker. His wines are instantly appealing due to a long elevage which gives the wines texture, intense fruit but with the underlying minerality that makes them fresh and vibrant. It is a modern and true expression of this famous region and we are really pleased to have Fabien’s wines. Just to confirm – he is no relation to any other Dauvissats from Chablis!
