Jean Dauvissat, Montmains 1er Cru Chablis 2018

Wine By Bok Review

We brought in this great producer based upon some samples they sent over a couple of months ago!

We tasted 4 bottles of their samples along with a ringer from Chablis. The result was stunning, the well-known Chablis ringer turned out to be ranking last in every aspect, it’s a total shame and pity for this ringer.First time I had Chablis from this plot, was told that Montmains also covered some better known plots like Butteaux and Forets, so it has to be a respectable 1er Cru plot. Bouquet started with ocean breeze, but morphed into forest freshness. A sip and my eyes lit up, there was this piercing acidity that’s so lively and enjoyable, absolutely stunning start!

 

As I slowly drink the remaining glass, I realize it has this Yin (acidity) and Yang (butter) character, the palate has this smooth buttery taste as well as great minerality, it’s really enjoyable to have the best of both combinations. I talked to the winemaker thereafter, he told me they pushed maturation to 24 months, and they will do the same for all other 1er Cru wines they produce starting 2019.

Jean Dauvissat Fourchaume 1er Cru Chablis 2018

Wine By Bok Review

Fourchaume being one of the most famous 1er Cru plot of Chablis, I do have high expectations out of it!

I still have some leftovers of Montmains, so it’s really good for comparison sake. It took me many sips to tell the difference. The bouquet was elegant with fruity flavors. Palate was with the usual great piercing acidity, although this wine is more feminine than Montmains, probably due to only 12 months maturation, thus it really gives a lively and indulging feeling, without too much coloration. Personally I prefer the Montmains but I’d take this Fourchaume anytime as well.

Jean Dauvissat Chablis “Heritage” 2018

Wine By Bok Review

My favorite of the 4 samples?

This Heritage, although they sent me the 2016 vintage. It did not escape my fussy palate, turned out to be the highest ranking of the tasting, and my vote for wine of the flight. While I tried to acquire some 2016 vintages, it was all sold out, so we have no choice but to purchase the 2018 vintage, and last night’s tasting with their “Claire” label, it confirmed to me this “Heritage” is definitely one of the best village level Chablis one can purchase in Singapore.

These wines are produced from Jean Dauvissat’s oldest vines, planted between 1950 and 1960, thus a sip and one will be persuaded it has so much flavor, almost endless description for it.

The flavor starts at the front palate, with lively, sharp and focus acidity, and a sweetness from the girl-next-door feel, I’m totally sold on the first sip already. The complexity is amazing although the finishing is a bit short. More importantly, I’m more than happy to field this bottle against any village level Chablis, and I’m extremely confident that this will pitch well against any strong player out there.

Jean Dauvissat Chablis Cuvee Claire 2018Wine By Bok Review

Last night’s tasting of Jean Dauvissat Claire versus Heritage, it was of two extreme end. I can summarize here in a sentence, it was two octave down from Heritage, all things being equal. This one truly belonged to the village level. Bouquet of typical Chablis of lemon juice and lemon skin. Content does have decent acidity, unfortunately I didn’t quite like the presentation, it was a bit stony and Pomelo driven. For wines that cannot meet our expectation, we promise not to bring them in, as we have pride of bringing in wines that meets our strict criteria. So sadly this wine got a 8.75/10!

Best Kept Secret is Out in Singapore
Top Chablis Producer is Ridiculously Underpriced!

Top 3 Chablis Producer

Who Has Been Selling Below Market Price For Its Outstanding Quality!

Fabien Dauvissat of the Jean Dauvissat Pere & Fils estate is now officially on the map as one of the top producers in the States. He is increasingly popular in his native France and he has been discovered by 3 tier here in the states. Prices will go up to reflect the quality that we’ve all come to enjoy. He has been a top 3 Chablis producer for 3 years and his wines are ridiculously underpriced as everyone on the list who has tried them knows. It’s good for Fabien, and lord knows he deserves it as he works his butt off.

Urgency is INTENSE!

They sell out quickly and since he has been anointed by Stephen Tanzer and Vinous, the urgency is intense. The wines now are strictly allocated as he sells every bottle before they are even bottled. You cannot believe how hot he he is over in France!

Paul Lato Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard Santa Maria Valley 2015

  Bok's Rating:

Paul Lato Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard Santa Maria Valley 2015
9.25 stars
2 Feb 2021

I have never had any Pinot Noir from California, thus I was curious enough to pop open this bottle given by my friend. I just had their Chardonnay a week ago, and was sufficiently impressed with the content. Thus I think Paul Lato quality is definitely on very receptive level. The bouquet was definitely some sweet red cherry nose, very seductive, feels like drinking the wines from the nose! Content did not disappoint, it was with a very seductive palate, very friendly style, almost a “girl next door” sweetness, with brightness that put red burgundies to shame. The wine has very decent depth, length and complexity. Frankly, my encountering with Pinot Noir from North America has better success rates than those from the Mecca (obviously I was referring to red burgundies).

Baron Thenard Montrachet 2007

  Bok's Rating:

Baron Thenard Montrachet 2007
9.5 stars
26-Jan-21

I’ve had quite a few Montrachets from the 2007 vintage, and they almost possessed the same character – not ready, it’ll take years, perhaps decades, for the wine to be readied to drink! I once had Baron Thenard Montrachet 2000, it was really addictive and seductive, one of the best Montrachets I’ve ever had. So I had high expectations for the 2007, but perhaps I will have to defer my review till the future. For now, I’d give you a snapshot of the content; very steely and mineral was my first encounter, great acidity (which was supposed to be 2007 key characteristic), slightly lemony and a dash of lime. Bouquet was terribly muted with very light smokiness.

Cos d’Estournel St Estephe 1979

  Bok's Rating:

Cos d’Estournel St Estephe 1979
8.75 stars
5 Feb 2021

I was facing some trouble deciphering this wine tonight, as it did not possess any Cos d’Estournel typical character of creamy latte, mocha and thick tea leaves. Admittedly, 1979 was a relatively poor vintage for Bordeaux, I’ve never had anything impressive except for Cheval Blanc. This Cos d’Estournel tasted with slightly thin and diluted fruits, a reflection of poor vintage. Another irritation was the unresolved tannins. Bok, are you nuts? After 42 years the tannins still not resolved?! Well, sorry if you don’t like facts, but palate don’t lie. The irritating grips were all over the place, of which the diluted fruits made the tannins more prominent.

Chateau d’Issan 3rd Growth Margaux 1962

  Bok's Rating:

Chateau d’Issan 3rd Growth Margaux 1962
9.25 stars
26 Feb 2021

I always enjoyed the 1962 vintage, as it was over-shadowed by the famed 1961 vintage. d’Issan 1962 did not disappoint, and was well within my expectation. Drinking right next to the Mouton Rothschild 1973, it wasn’t shy nor inferior. Bouquet was of typical dry cupboard (but not TCA taint, as it’s one of the characteristics of aged Bordeaux), mingled with very ripe red fruit. Palate revealed this wine was structurally sound, with solid foundation. It tasted with good flavor and good depth. In fact, it tasted even younger than Mouton Rothschild 1973 despite being 11 years older, and the color was much deeper than Mouton Rothschild 1973 as well.

Ballot Millot Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru 2018

  Bok's Rating:

Ballot Millot Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru 2018
9.25 stars
31 Jan 2021

I must confess I did not have any good experience with this bottle tonight. Thought highly of this winemaker after tasting their Les Narvaux as well as Perrieres from Meursault, but this Chevalier Montrachet was utter disappointment to me. There were no character of the feminine style of Chevalier Montrachet that I’ve ever had with so many Chevaliers I’ve ever had in my life, neither does it possess any evolution during my 2 hours dinner, which was totally unexpected for a Grand Cru. Instead, it was almost the same from start to end, with a slight tendency towards being syrupy. The tonality is heavily leaned towards ripe peach. I can only think of two reasons why this bottle could not impress me; Firstly, it maybe too young a Grand Cru to drink right now, and it needs a lengthy bottle aging. Secondly, this winemaker is poor at making wines not coming from Meursault.

Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1973

  Bok's Rating:

Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1973
9.5 stars
26 Feb 2021

This was the year that Mouton Rothschild got promoted from 2nd growth to 1st growth, and thus the famous motto from Mouton Rothschild; “First I am. Second I used to be. Mouton does not change.” To celebrate their escalation to the top class, they invited Pablo Picasso to draw their yearly-changing label. Bear in mind 1973 was a relatively weak vintage, I never had anything impressive except for Cheval Blanc 73 which was easy to drink but with some green stalky notes. After more than 25 years of drinking, I finally fill the void of the missing vintage of Mouton Rothschild 1973. It did extremely well, did not feel like a wine with Cabernet Sauvignon denominated, and unlike Cheval Blanc, there wasn’t any green stalky note. Nose was so seductive, sexy and high class. Content was silky smooth, with totally resolved tannins and definitively the best window to drink right now. Wine was with relatively high acidity and not much complexity, however, it more than made up with it’s hedonistic and seductive taste.

Henri Boillot Clos de la Mouchere 1er Cru 2018 versus Jean Dauvissat Montmains 1er Cru 2018

  Bok's Rating:

Henri Boillot Clos de la Mouchere 1er Cru 2018 versus Jean Dauvissat Montmains 1er Cru 2018
9.5 stars
30 Mar 2021

Henri Boillot Clos de la Mouchere is my go-to wine when it comes to 1er Cru level white burgundies, as I have full faith with it’s quality that year in, year out it has never failed me with very reliable quality.

Meanwhile, Jean Dauvissat Montmains 1er Cru is a new found love from Chablis, and I recently rated it 9.5 stars, thus I want to put two of them together for a showdown. It’s like Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor, the biggest money fight. A whiff of both and one can tell Clos de la Mouchere has the winning poise, with loads of expression, while the Montmains was shy and muted.

A sip and it’s already a KO punch thrown by Clos de la Mouchere, as the acidity was so prominent, and the fruits were so jammed packed with solid elements, not for the faint-hearted. Montmains was able to match the acidity but the fruits could not be on par with Clos de la Mouchere. However, not all were lost for Montmains, it still put up a strong fight as the content difference wasn’t so big. The counter punch from Montmains came when the wines warmed up slightly. Somehow the Clos de la Mouchere “disintegrated” with it’s flavor and style, while Montmains maintained a very good composure, still able to throw good punches.

I couldn’t pick a winner, as both are solid fighters in their own way. A well deserving truce to end the showdown.
