About the Winery
Domaine Vincent Dauvissat is arguably the finest Domaine in Chablis. Established in the 1970s by Robert Dauvissat, the Domaine has passed down from father to son for three generations. Robert’s son René is to thank for establishing the reputation of the Domaine. Vincent began working with his father, René, in the 1970s and today runs the Domaine. A loyal following among France’s most esteemed restaurateurs sharply limits the availability of Dauvissat wines for export. Despite limited quantities, the wines have attracted the praise and attention of critics worldwide.

Vincent Dauvissat farms nearly 30 acres of meticulously kept vineyards, following sustainable, organic and biodynamic methods. These vines (4.5 acres of Vaillons, 2 of Séchets, and 9.4 of Fôrets among the Premiers Crus; 2.5 of Preuses and 4.5 of Les Clos among the Grands Crus) are splendidly situated on hillsides underlain by Jurassic limestone. Yields are limited to about 50 hectoliters per hectare (3.7 tons per acre), modest by the standards of the region.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"This means business from the outset with a beautifully fresh and mouthwatering, citrus and yellow-nectarine nose. The palate has a super fleshy, mouth-filling shape and delivers so much peach and grapefruit flavor, before binding tight and releasing a sizzling mineral line that runs so long. Impressive and explosive! Try from 2024." (Jul 2019)

93 Points - Allen Meadiws' BurgHound:
"An exuberantly floral-infused nose speaks of smoky mineral reduction, petrol and tidal pool wisps. The more refined and sleeker medium-bodied flavors are also caressing but punchy while offer plenty of minerality on the linear, bone-dry, youthfully austere and built-to-age finale. Lovely stuff." (Nov 2020)

90-94 Points - Inside Burgundy:
"Another very clear fresh colour. The Montée de Tonnerre is a little bit austere on the nose, very lean and tight and yet with a super quality of fruit behind, in a mix of styles but including some ripe apple notes amongst others." (May 2019)

90-92 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2018 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is a pretty wine, even if it doesn't quite show the delineation of the finest wines in this range and fdrom this site. Lemon confit, mint, white pepper and orchard fruit all flesh out in this pretty, mid-weight Chablis. The 2018 offers lovely mid-palate pliancy and overall depth in a fairly accfessible style for this top 1er Cru." - Antonio Galloni (Jan 2020)
