Chablis 1er Cru, “Vaillons”
The Dauvissat holdings are slightly in excess of 4 hectares with seven-tenths of a hectare being devoted to the old vines planting. The “Vaillons” vineyard lies in the center of the large 1er Cru hillside on the southwestern side of Chablis. The vines are on a steep slope and have a south-southeast exposition. Amongst the 1er Crus at the Dauvissat domaine, the “Vaillons” is perhaps the most typical “Chablisien” with its clear reference to the Kimmeridgian subsoils … an intensely mineral wine with a persistent finish.
