Jean Dauvissat

Although not as well known as his cousin Rene (of Rene et Vincent Dauvissat) nor his other cousin (by marriage) Francois Raveneau, the wines of this Dauvissat have been on the up and up. Fabien Dauvissat took over from his father in 2009 after completing his studies in Beaune and Dijon. This is another one of those stories becoming more common in the region these days. The Young Fabien returned to Chablis after graduating and began to work with his father. He now runs the 22 hectare domaine and has reinvigorated this old estate working more closely with his vineyards, adopting organic principles and modernising the winery. The results in recent years speak for themselves with their purity and tension. ROSCOE
