The 2018 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru is a wine of precision and power. Tightly wound and explosive, the 2018 possesses tremendous energy and tension that sizzles from start to finish. The combination of richness and austerity is so compelling. The 2018 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. (1/2020) AG

95 points John Gilman - View from the Cellar
The 2018 les Preuses is outstanding this year (but that is probably true every year in the Dauvissat cellars for several generations now!), with nicely ripe fruit coupled to kaleidoscopic mineral undertow and a marvelous girdle of acidity. The bouquet jumps from the glass in an already very complex mix of apple, lemon peel, grapefruit, all sorts of mineral shadings, paraffin and white flowers. On the palate the wine is very pure and mineral-driven, with a full-bodied and classic format, superb depth at the core and excellent length and grip on the ripe, but very mineral finish. Fine, fine juice. (Drink between 2024-2065) (12/2019)

92-95 points Allan Meadows - Burghound
A wonderfully broad-ranging nose is composed by restrained aromas of mineral reduction, floral, pear, apple and iodine scents. As is usually the case this is notably finer if less powerful, indeed the mouth feel of the cool middle weight flavors is almost delicate though this texture contrasts considerably with the lingering and strikingly complex finish that is, like the La Forest, almost chewy. This is one of the wines of the vintage though note well that patience will be required. (10/2019)
