Making it the most recent of the Dauvissat Domaines in Chablis, the one created by Agnès and Didier Dauvissat released its first vintage in 1989. It now stretches over 10 hectares, with parcels in Petit Chablis, Chablis village and the premier cru Beauroy. Florent, Didier’s son, is now at the helm of the property, crafting vibrant, zesty and mineral Chablis. Despite being a relatively recent producer, Domaine Agnès and Didier Dauvissat is already making a name for itself with their pure expressions of Chardonnay.
Agnes and Didier Dauvissat’s Beauroy sings with racy florals and minerals with surprising richness.
Beauroy is a well-exposed, south-facing premier cru on the left bank of the Serein River, which cuts through the centre of the appellation. It has rich soil of clay and limestone with lots of fossilized oysters. The wine sees a tiny amount of oak, giving it a wonderful baked apple, quince paste and citrus personality that complements the minerality and chamomile notes. Long and intriguing, with the slightest salinity, and sea spray too.
