92The Wine Advocate

Offering up aromas of white currants, citrus oil, spring flowers and oyster shell, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with superb concentration and cut, concluding with a long and lingering finish.

91Wine Spectator

Attractive aromas and flavors of melon, apple and earth give way to briny, minerally elements as this white firms up on the finish. Shows subtle length, with a green apple edge to the acidity.

91Vinous / IWC floral and open-knit, with a lovely perfume to match its gracious, understated personality. A wine of great subtlety and nuance, the Chablis captures all of the Dauvissat signatures.

90-91James Suckling

Has a smoke edge with a fine core of yellow citrus and neat flinty aromas. Yellow grapefruit here. Very neat punchy acidity, good depth and ripeness. Moves into yellow peaches. Flesh with tension and freshness.


France, Burgundy, Chablis

Chablis is the northernmost region of Burgundy, located just 110 miles southeast of Paris. It is also one of the region’s most historic, and by some measures most under-rated, appellations. In the 19th century Chablis included 100,000 acres of vineyards and supplied Paris with much of its red and white wine. Today Chablis has just 7,000 acres of AOC vineyards, having lost many to the 19th century phylloxera scourge. Chablis is admired by white wine cognoscenti, however, for its Chardonnays, which are notably different from the Chardonnays produced further south. Chardonnay is the only grape grown for the Chablis appellation – there are no red wines. Chablis has seven Grand Cru vineyards and twenty-two Premier Crus. Given its northern location, harvests are not dependable in Chablis. But in good years the wines are generally described as “flinty,” meaning more acidic, steely, austere and mineral tasting than the fuller, fruitier Chardonnays of the Côte d’ Or. In the 20th century, Chablis’ wider recognition as a venerable wine-producing region suffered from the fact that bulk wine producers in California and Australia made unappealing white jug wine blends of various white grapes, rarely including Chardonnay, which they marketed as “Chablis.”


White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
