"Impeccable Balance" - 2010 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru Séchet

Posted by Ian McFadden

Séchet is for purists.

It’s a bottling that boasts deep cut and a blatant expression of saline minerality. There’s a directness and elegance to Séchet that always impresses us.

For us, it's one of the unheralded bottles in his line-up.

At a staff gathering a month ago, we drank an amazing bottle of 2010 Séchet from the same parcel that's on offer today.

In Chablis, the 2010 vintage created profoundly mineral and concentrated wines. Dauvissat's 2010s are simply stunning, the stand out collection of the very strong vintage.

In 2010, Séchet has the wine's classic razor's edge of textured minerality and then the vintage kicks up the punch and presence. It's simply a dazzling and full-force expression of Chablis' unique minerality.

Before wrapping up, we should address Dauvissat's labeling conventions. There are two labels: Vincent Dauvissat and Dauvissat-Camus. Burghound says the following about the two labels: "Because I often get this question I will add that according to Vincent Dauvissat, the Dauvissat-Camus wines are 100% identical to those that appear under the Vincent Dauvissat label."

Dauvissat's 2010s are legendary. A few weeks ago, we offered Dauvissat's 2010 Forest and it was met with a huge outpouring of orders. We have less Séchet available. It's a very safe bet that it will sell out. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
