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

Burghound

BH 93
"From one-third Beugnons and two-thirds Châtains. A markedly more floral-infused nose reveals additional notes of white pepper, tidal pool, iodine and plenty of citrus elements. There is a bit more volume to the beautifully textured medium weight flavors that possess excellent punch while keeping a similar level of refinement on the balanced, focused and lingering finale. This is pretty much textbook Vaillons."

Antonio Galloni

AG 94
"The 2022 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru has a rather strict nose, backward with crushed stone and fleeting white flowers. The palate has a lovely rondeur on the entry with white peach and nectarine, those deep clayey soils giving depth and persistence to the finish. Quite powerful, but it will need time." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 94
"Bursting with notes of white flowers, orange zest, nutmeg and iodine, the 2022 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with bright acids and a long, expansive and perfumed finish. As ever, its expressive, charming style makes it something of the more-mineral Séchet's alter ego."

Decanter

D 93
"A very precise, high-quality example, with weight and ripeness on the palate coming from vines which are planted on very thick soils over Marne bedrock. Touch of bitterness on the finish. Attractive, forward and floral Vaillons."
