Domaine Agnès et Didier Dauvissat Petit Chablis Les Deux Terres 2022  - First Bottle

Reviews

90 Decanter -
A fine example of Petit Chablis, with crisp acidity to complement the pear and peach fruit on the palate. Slightly peppery, with a hint of bitterness adding freshness and complexity on the finish. Will drink well for several years. Agnès, Didier and son Florent Dauvissat are based in Beines.

The First Bottle faithful made quick work of the last few vintages of this wine – just an exceptional Petit Chablis, from plots right above Chablis’ revered Grand Crus, for a nigh-on unheard-of price! We don’t have a ton of this – and great value White Burgundy is guaranteed to fly!

Agnès and Didier Dauvissat’s 13-hectare property is based in the village of Beine, just about 10 minutes west of Chablis. They have attracted a fair share of critical praise since their inception in 1987, and these wines get a little bit harder to get every single year! Decanter’s Master of Wine, Andy Howard, recently had this in his top-scoring Petit Chablis wines of 2022, calling this wine:

“A fine example of Petit Chablis, with crisp acidity to complement the pear and peach fruit on the palate. Slightly peppery, with a hint of bitterness adding freshness and complexity on the finish. Will drink well for several years.”

This young Burgundy Domaine is currently run by the second generation, Florent Dauvissat. His familial connections got him an opportunity to train in the cellars at the far more famous Vincent Dauvissat, as his father Didier, is Vincent’s cousin. It seems as though his time there has been put to good use, as these 2022 wines might just be the best yet from this domaine – layered, complex, and crunchy, with a more classic, and more restrained ripeness and roundness than the past couple years – which bodes well for this exceptional value’s drinkability over the next several years!

This is their smallest production, only about 350 cases total, from their 3.5-hectare holdings in Petit Chablis. The fruit hails from two south-facing, old vine parcels near Beine and just above the cluster of Chablis’ seven Grand Crus. All of the fruit is fermented in stainless steel, before aging exclusively in neutral barrels at a minimum of seven years old. For 2022, the wine is filled with barely ripe stone fruit notes, with following flavors of crisp pears, and green apples. The aromas are fresh, flinty, and clean, linked to the river rock minerality that is expressed on the palate. Notes of lemon curd and fresh green herbs bring the wine to a pleasing close – with a final flourish of pink peppercorns providing the electric jolt to your tongue that makes this so delightfully compelling! For well under $30 – this is a treat for any White Burgundy lover – and one not to be missed! Claim a few of your own while we have them!

PAIRING IDEAS: A more classic expression of Petit Chablis deserves a classic pairing...OYSTERS! No less than a dozen should do it, with a bit of tarragon mignonette, a squeeze of lemon, and a dash of vinegar-based hot sauce. Perfection.
