"A brilliant wine in the making"
2022 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

Posted by Ian McFadden

By all reports, Dauvissat's 2022 Forest is a beautiful bottle. The wine combines Forest's classic Chablisienne profile with a serious presence. It's a very impressive combination.

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 2022 is a bold Forest with lots of concentration and a decisive core of minerality. There's plenty of punch, grip, and Chablis' sea breeze minerality. It's a wine that seems to attack the senses from every angle.

Every time we offer Dauvissat's Forest, we're slammed by a really strong response. I don't expect this offering to be any different. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.

2022 Dauvissat, Vincent Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

750 ml


William Kelley, The Wine Advocate: "A brilliant wine in the making, Dauvissat's 2022 Chablis 1er Cru La Forest unfurls in the glass with youthfully reductive scents of citrus oil, crisp stone fruit, white flowers, oyster shell and subtle hints of orange blossom. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with superb depth at the core and an electric finish, this cuvée has navigated the vintage's extremes with ease."
