About This Wine

"Well-balanced, crisp and chiseled" -Burghound

For us, it's one of the unheralded bottles in his lineup.

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.

The 2018 Séchet flaunts all of these hallmarks. It's a full-force expression of Séchet's mineral thrust. Vincent Dauvissat compares the vintage to the legendary pair of 1947 and 1959. Like 1947 and 1959, 2018 is a riper vintage. What's extraordinary about Dauvissat's 2018s is how they marry tension and power. It's very clear that Dauvissat nailed the vintage in a way that few others did.

Burghound wisely highlights the 2018 Séchet's "wonderful sense of underlying tension". When you combine the razor's edge mineral expression with punch and presence, the results are dazzling. The power and verve are interwoven in gorgeous harmony.
