Vincent Dauvissat (and father René) have become what many consider to be the top domaine in Chablis (along with Raveneau) through very hard, meticulous work in the vineyard and the cellar. Of course it doesn't hurt that they also possess some of the best parcels within the best Premier and Grand Cru vineyards.

All their wines are fermented in tanks and spend a year settling there before being carefully transferred to oak barrels, mostly neutral, for additional aging. This adds a richness, depth and complexity to the mineral, saline characters that their terroirs produce.

Professional Reviews


BH 90
"This is not only more elegant but more complex and slightly riper as well with a much greater emphasis on the typical Séchet citrus elements. There is good richness to the round and relatively generous medium weight flavors that possess a seductively textured mouth feel. There is a lovely minerality and underlying tension to the very dry, balanced and persistent finish that displays a hint of bitter lemon. This should be quite good and offer solid mid-term cellaring potential."

"The 2011 Chablis Sechets emerges from the glass with beautiful scents of lime, oyster shell and grapefruit, all backed up by the richness and pure texture of the year. There is plenty of near and medium-term appeal in the Sechets, a wine that captures the very best qualities of the year. Over the last year, the Sechets has come together beautifully." -Vinous

"The Vincent Dauvissat 2011 Chablis Sechet delivers a striking sense of lift and transparency allied to infectious juiciness. Succulent and refreshing grapefruit, lime and yellow plum are wreathed in buddleia and high-toned herbal extracts, then mingled on a buoyant (almost delicate) and silken-textured palate with the saline-sweet savor of raw scallop. The saliva-inducing, umami-rich animal aspects are perfectly complemented by almost infinite juiciness of citrus and pit fruits that are transparent to seductively floral and shimmeringly crystalline-mineral nuances.."
