Vincent Dauvissat 2004 and 2005
Rare Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses Half-Bottles
Special Offer for Chablis Fans - 48 Half-Bottles Available
2004: "...akin to having a vinous bomb go off in your mouth."
2005: "Trust me, this is a 'wow' wine."
Vincent Dauvissat needs no introduction; he's one of Chablis' greatest and this offering is *only* for those of you who have supported our collectible Chablis program in the past. (After all, we have only 24 half-bottles of each vintage!)
Half-bottles of Dauvissat are exceedingly rare; only a handful of the stores in the world have any, none have Preuses. Because of the limited quantities, we will sell these on a first-come, first-served basis. Please give us your maximum order, but we will likely have to allocate. All orders subject to confirmation.
Just a few notes: While Clos is the vineyard that usually receives the accolades in Chablis (no matter who the producer), Dauvissat's Preuses is a force to reckoned with. In both 2004 and 2005 I don't think it's controversial to say that Preuses is qualitatively on par with Clos. The style, the terroir, of course, is different - Preuses is never as large, never quite as muscular, yet for classicists Preuses is thrilling in its form, in its finesse, in the bare, glossy, pungency of its minerality.
We strongly encourage readers to peruse the Burghound's notes below - both vintages are great for Dauvissat and for the Chablis scholar, we have specially priced a 2004 and 2005 two-pack.

2004 Dauvissat Chablis Grand Crus Les Preuses Half-Bottle
Burghound: "As good as the La Forest is, this undoubtedly raises the quality bar with its ripe, ultra pure and focused green fruit and oyster shell-infused nose that is almost laser-like in its precision and nuance that complements perfectly the rich, sweet and unbelievably intense flavors that culminate in an explosively long but distinctly fine finish. This is akin to having a vinous bomb go off in your mouth as the backend just goes on and on with an energy and vibrancy that immediately declares that this is no ordinary grand cru. This too is one to buy and cellar."
2005 Dauvissat Chablis Grand Crus Les Preuses Half-Bottle
Burghound: "Here the restrained nose is bright, elegant and classy, offering an unmistakable step up in distinction and refinement with very subtle background notes of botrytis that can also be found on the textured, supple and pure medium full flavors that are sweet, complex and utterly palate drenching on the hugely long and intense finish. Indeed, this is so intense that I had to stall for time to allow my palate to recover before moving on to the Les Clos. Trust me, this is a 'wow' wine."
