2015 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

Posted by Ian McFadden

I rarely pass up the opportunity to buy Dauvissat's Forest.

Along with Raveneau's Butteaux and Montée de Tonnerre, Dauvissat's Forest is one of the most sought after and ageworthy 1er Crus.

In Dauvissat's hands, Forest brims with notes of saline-inflected crushed rocks, and bright citrus fruits. It's a mesmerizing wine that ages beautifully. 

The 2015 is a bold Forest with tons of concentration and a decisive core of minerality. There's plenty of punch, presence, and Chablis' sea breeze minerality. It's a wine that seems to attack the senses from every angle. 

I was really happy to have landed this modest parcel. The 2015 Forest has really flourished since its release. It has reached a beautiful place where it's simultaneously deep and finessed.

I should close with a warning that we'll likely have to allocate. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.

"This is aromatically even more complex if perhaps a bit less elegant with its pure if mildly exotic array of citrus, iodine, tidal pool, white peach and apple aromas. There is excellent punch to the full-bodied and muscular middle weight flavors that possess plenty of mouth coating sap that helps to buffer the moderately firm acid spine. This powerful effort should reward from 6 to 10 years of bottle age and is another in a long line of fine examples of La Forest from Vincent Dauvissat."
