JEAN & SEBASTIEN DAUVISSAT 2018 'LES SECHETS' CHABLIS 1ER CRU
Les Sechets is a very special vineyard located within the Vaillons Premier Cru. A favorite among Chablis connoisseurs, this spot on the mid-slope of the hillside is prized for yielding perfectly balanced grapes with great floral aromatics. This particular site is slightly east-facing, meaning the grapes ripen gently in the early morning sunshine rather than under hot afternoon rays. In Dauvissat hands, the final result is a wine that is hard to contain in the glass, and honestly even harder to write about: Effusive aromas of white flowers, lemon zest, and stony minerality come to the forefront right away, while time in the glass reveals crisp golden apple and pear notes. The wine is linear and focused with intense floral notes and a soft and persistent finish.
