This is a don't miss vintage of Forest.
In Dauvissat's hands, Forest brims with notes of saline, crushed rocks, sea-breeze minerality, and bright citrus fruits.
It's a mesmerizing wine that ages beautifully.
As the Burghound note above makes clear, this is a profoundly serious vintage for Dauvissat's Forest.
The 2017 vintage in Chablis produces a cast of really impressive wines. They have the richness and presence of the vintage with an intense salty, Chablisienne minerality coursing through it.
Dauvissat's Forest really exploits the character of the vintage. It hits a magical place where it's simultaneously deeply concentrated and outrageously refined and detailed. There's a riveting, detailed minerality and an impressive, lengthy finish. The amount of focus and finesse is remarkable.
When vintages of Dauvissat's Forest come around like 2017, the smart move is to stock up. There's no doubt that with age, it will be an utterly captivating bottle of Chablis.

Burghound: "This is aromatically cooler than the Vaillons with its airy combination of algae, lemon rind and wet stone where the latter element can also be found on the sleek, intense and energetic middle weight plus flavors that are a bit finer than usual, all wrapped in a bone dry and aggressively mineral-driven finale. A classic tightly coiled La Forest that is clearly built-to-age."
