Ripe and charming, intense and lifted. Showing purity of fruit and clarity, although the aromas are currently quite subdued. Racy and beautifully poised, with a very long finish. (SB) (1/2017)

I love Vincent Dauvissat’s La Forest and the 2015 is an absolutely classic version! The bouquet is pure, nascently complex and very expressive, wafting from the glass in a fine, fine blend of flinty, wet stone minerality, pear, lime, a whisper of the coming beeswax, candied lemon peel and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and rock solid at the core, with an open attack, an outstanding sense of reserve at the core, bright acids and excellent lift and cut on the very long, zesty finish. This is fairly open in personality today, but it has additional layers of complexity to offer to those with a bit of patience. 93+ (3/2017)

The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru la Forest has a seductive bouquet of toffee apple, quince, flint and touches of apricot blossom developing over time all with superb delineation. The palate is very well balanced with outstanding energy and tension, perhaps waxy in texture and with a slow burning build that leads to a vibrant quince, marmalade and white pepper finish that seems to lacquer the mouth. What a great Forêt…(NM) (8/2017)
