    January 15, 2022 - A great bottle of this - absolutely perfect - that combination of age and bite and balance. I would note that this was a wax capsule.

    January 12, 2022 - Slightly oxidized unfortunately - but you can tell there’s quality here. Quite fat and buttery, nice acidity.

    December 17, 2021 - Incredibly fresh and young, needed air to unfold: citrus, pepper, iodine notes, long and mouth coating. A bottle just at the beginning of its drinking plateau.

    December 11, 2021 - First, my deepest sympathies to our wine friends who commented recently regarding this wine. It is so disappointing to have expectations set and then a great bottle is spoiled. That said, A few months ago had a bottle of Dauvissat 2016 Chablis Village, which I swear is already going. So, even in the “modern era“ there are no guarantees. Fortunately that is the only bottle of Dauvissat I have had that was bad.

    I purchased four bottles of this wine several years ago… fortunately this is simply singing tonight. There are no signs of premox; the color is bright lemon yellow, the nose is full of oyster shell and the palate is singing, with sharp lemon, lemon curd, minerality and vibrant acidity. So bright and so fine. Lovely.

    November 27, 2021 - From 75cl, optically perfect cork. Having been criticised in a CT comment this morning for giving an honest rating for a 250 EUR bottle of red burgundy which tasted like "natural wine" (and was, to those that like such things, probably not "faulty"), I shall refrain from giving details (and an accurate point score) for this vile, putrid disgrace. Yes, I rated a bottle of this (currently 150 EUR) wine 92P on 15.04.2016; yes, I hoped for a pleasant experience this evvening, but phew... it was disgusting. Urine colour, apple vinegar, cheapo sherry. Premox, yet again. We drank it anyway, to prove... something, I don't know what. Never again will I spend my own money on a bottle of Dauvissat Chablis until I can buy it under screwcap or DIAM. And no, I don't think you should, either.
