2003 Dauvissat Vincent, ChablisNov. 2005
A young looking medium-pale yellow. The nose initially borders on the exotic with a little added caramel. Given time the nose becomes purer, still sweet, with nice high tones and shades of green-skinned apples. I’d describe the palate as rather mute and one dimensional following the Denis Mortet Bourgogne Blanc, but given the sweetness of the Mortet perhaps that was no surprise. Time shows a well concentrated finish and good-enough acidity though I would have preferred more. Almost good, but not on my re-purchase list.
2001 Dauvissat Vincent, Chablis La ForestMar. 2004
Light gold in colour. The nose is deep and honeyed. Understated and mineral is the palate, the best feature being the really excellent balance. The finish lingers with the fine acidity – a bottle that was suddenly empty – how did that happen?
