This really is one of the last bastions of true “cool climate” Chardonnay. Caves Jean & Sébastien Dauvissat, now run by Sébastien, has tended to be viewed by label-chasers as the “other” Dauvissat, but there’s no way to justify the yawning price gap between the two—we just need to be quiet and take advantage of it! This deeply moving old-vine (vieilles vignes) bottling from the fabled “Vaillons” Premier Cru is the perfect example: It represents a notable step up in power and intensity from Dauvissat’s regular Vaillons bottling with a negligible difference in price. That’s what these Dauvissats do: Keep upping the value-for-dollar ratio to seemingly impossible levels. The 2016 comes from a choice parcel of 70+-year-old vines in Vaillons, creating a profoundly luscious wine that doesn’t lose any of the chalk-etched minerality we crave. With four years of positive bottle evolution under its belt, the Vaillons Vieilles Vignes is ready to play, but will keep your mouth watering and your mind engaged for many years to come. The palate has chiseled mineral firmness padded by a subliminal sweetness. Fresh pineapple, raw pie crust, and heady notes of white truffle build slowly towards a salty, yellow-fruited crescendo. You will not, I repeat will not, find a better Chablis value anywhere! “The Dauvissat surname carries a lot of weight in Chablis, as does the name “Vaillons.” Combine the two, throw in some serious vine age, and you’ve got one high-impact Chablis to enjoy now and over the next decade.”
