The 2011 les Clos from Domaine Dauvissat is a bit more reserved than the utterly suave les Preuses from this vintage, but its inherent quality is every bit as easy to read. The deep and stunning nose offers up a youthful mix of pink grapefruit, green apple, complex, very flinty minerality, a touch of hay, orange zest and a gentle base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nascently complex, with great purity and focus, glorious mid-palate depth and brilliant length and grip on the snappy and still quite primary finish. A great wine in the making. (Drink between 2018-2045)

The 2011 Chablis Les Clos is especially massive in this vintage. Rich, voluptuous and enveloping, the 2011 wraps around the palate with a crescendo of aromas and flavors supported by equally imposing structure. The style is quite powerful. It will be interesting to see if more Clos finesse develops over time. -AG

This is also highly perfumed with a pronounced floral component dominating the other aromas that are composed of citrus, seaweed, iodine and mineral reduction while leaving no doubt that this could be nothing other than Chablis. There is excellent size, weight and muscle to the overtly powerful and well-concentrated flavors that exude a fine minerality on the extract rich finish. This explosive effort is almost aggressively saline and should improve for up to a decade in bottle.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos has an initially quite simple bouquet, but one that gains complexity with salted caramel, almond and smoke scents, well defined and gaining vigor with aeration. The palate is crisp and focused on the entry with a fine line of acidity and minerality, although it feels quite austere toward the razor-sharp finish. This is another Dauvissat wine that has completely closed down now, and I expect my parsimonious score will be made to look foolish down the line. - Neal Martin
