2015 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Sechet 1er Cru (750ml)

Chardonnay from Chablis, Burgundy, France


The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Séchet fulfills the tremendous promise that it demonstrated in barrel last year. It has an expressive bouquet with scents of wild honey and a touch of petrol, leaning a little towards Riesling in style but with marvelous delineation. The palate is nervous and tensile, shimmering with energy which is quite amazing considering that 2015 was not supposed to have a high-acidity finish. The aftertaste is so mineral driven that the Séchet momentarily transports you to the vineyard. This comes highly recommended: an intellectual Chablis that should mature with style.

Much more about terroir than Chardonnay fruit on the nose, conveying scents of lemon, dried fruits, praline and almost medicinal menthol. Very rich and broad but almost austere, offering a wonderfully fine-grained texture but little in the way of easy sweetness. Finishes very long and taut, with noteworthy nervosité for the year.
