2008 Domaine Dauvissat (Rene & Vincent) 1er Cru Vaillons Chablis

Great balance on this young wine. Exotic fruit playing against robust acidity equals a fun wine to drink over several hours at cellar temperature and warmer.

These wines just offer so much more than your typical over $50 California Chardonnay ( exceptions I know) and just works so well with food.

I'm glad to have more in my cellar.

Sounds like my kind of wine! How ready to drink do you feel it is.


Just one more sip.

Board-O, I do not want to miss out on the freshness of the fruit playing against the acidity.

Now to 2015 for me. I'm having a lot of fun with '08 Chablis.

I tend to like these young, but there have been a few vintages that just need time. Thanks


Just one more sip.

Thanks for the note w+a. I love Dauvissat and I agree that the 08s are approachable and excellent to drink now and over the next 5 years or so while letting the 07s rest.

This was the first '08 Vaillons I have had the pleasure to drink. I have tasted several bottles of the Forest and both are excellent in 2008. To me they are wonderful now. I have enjoyed the '06s as well which have now evolved to some more secondary favors. W+A and I have now shared both '08 Raveneau and Dauvissat. Both are excellent and may be my favorite younger Chablis that I have ever tasted.
