Overview

Left Bank, Right Bank...and in between

Here's a veritable tour of Chablis 1er Cru 'terroir' from the dusty dryness of Cote de Lechet to the full round ripeness of Fourchames with stops in between at Montmains and Vaillons. Real Chablis pedigree.

Here's a recent video of me presenting this very tasting:

And it's a great subject.  Left Bank Chablis vs Right Bank.

The River Serein runs through the Chablis valley.  Wines from the left bank are more mineral and fresh; wines from the right bank are rounder and opulent.

Jean Dauvissat Pere et Fils Chablis 1er Cru ‘Montmains’ 2018
Montmains, a Left Bank Chablis premier cru, is perhaps the best ‘all-around’ example of what Chablis should be. It comes from a very rocky soil which gives a very pronounced minerality with extraordinary power and good aging potential. At the same time, it is ample, full and round. It can be tight in its youth, but is characteristically exuberant and vivacious.

Jean Dauvissat Pere et Fils Chablis 1er Cru ‘Fourchaume’ 2019
Fourchaume is the best known of the Chablis premier crus, perhaps because it is an extension of the Grand Cru vineyards, and benefits from a similar Right Bank exposition. Round, mature fruit, crystalline purity, sweet, lemony acidity classic cool river rock minerality. A classic Chablis premier cru.

Jean Dauvissat Pere et Fils Chablis 1er Cru ‘Vaillons’ 2018
This Chablis 1er Cru ‘Vaillons’ is remarkable for its limpidity; it catches light and reflects it like a jewel. Vigorous and full, this is a big wine with fat decadent spicy fruit and deep lingering minerality. Balanced and precise from the attack, through the mid-palate to the long finish, this is a very well-made wine.

Jean Dauvissat Pere et Fils Chablis 1er Cru ‘Cote de Lechet’ 2019
A classic Cote de Lechet, about as mineral as Chablis can be. This premier cru Cote de Lechet is a model of Left Bank precision, razor sharp, with juicy, mouth-watering acidity. A characteristic floral attack and gun-flint smokiness fill the mid-palate, and the finish is bright berry fruit and long, long minerality.
