    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Dauvissat Camus, Chablis, 2017

    Fleshy fresh citrus fruits, excellent “gras” for a Chablis village, with tremendous acidity tempering the open and generous fruit. This remains very typically Chablis, too, with salt and marine notes here adding dimension and minerality to the fruit. More on the elegant side compared to Petit Chablis, the soils here are less stony and with more kimmeridgean clay.

    Dauvissat Camus

    Vincent started helping his father René in 1976 and, during the last decade, has gradually taken control of viticulture and winemaking. For him, the ultimate goal is to harvest healthy grapes that are fully ripe and concentrated which, he declares, can only be achieved consistently by hard work in the vineyard. His passion for wine enables him to put this work ethic into practice with real vigour - close pruning the vines (40 years old on average) during the growing season to restrict yields, hand harvesting at vintage time and ruthlessly discarding any rotten or split grapes. His vinification and maturation methods see him join the small band of Chablis producers who employ oak. The wines are vinifi ed and aged in a mixture of steel vats and 6- to 8-year-old wooden barrels. The wood is old and therefore doesn’t stamp any oak flavour onto the wines but does give them an extra depth of fl avour and density of body, whilst still retaining their unique identities. These are intensely terroir-driven, mineral wines of such concentration that they take longer than most to reach their best, though they are every bit worth the wait.
