One of Chablis' most prestigious proprietors, René Dauvissat, with his son Vincent, farms nearly twenty-three acres of meticulously kept vineyards, all in Premier Cru appellations. These vines (4.5 acres of Vaillons, 2 of Sechets, and 9.4 of Forets among the Premiers Crus, 2.5 of Preuses and 4.5 of Clos among the Grands Crus) are splendidly sited on hillsides underlain by Jurassic limestone. Yields are limited to about 50 hectoliters per hectare, modest by the standards of the region. A loyal following among France's most esteemed restaurateurs sharply limits the availability of Dauvissat wines for export. Nonetheless, it is no surprise that they have attracted the praise and attention from Hugh Johnson, Alexis Lichine, Robert Parker, and Anthony Hanson. "This talented winemaker makes it look almost too easy, routinely turning out intensely flavored, incisive wines that manage to be both accurate to their terroir and long on personality. While the wines can be austere in their youth, they have a track record of aging superbly." Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
