"This very powerful effort should be capable of rewarding up to a decade of cellaring"
2019 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

Posted by Ian McFadden

By all reports, Dauvissat's 2019 Forest is an epic bottle. The wine combines Forest's classic Chablisienne profile with an incredible scale. 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.

Vincent Dauvissat compares the 2019 to 1989, a vintage where Dauvissat made some amazing wines. The 2019 is a bold Forest with tons of concentration and a decisive and focused core of minerality. There's plenty of punch, presence, and Chablis' sea breeze minerality. The wine is riveting with its detailed minerality and impressive, lengthy finish.

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.

2019 Dauvissat, Vincent Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

750 ml


Burghound: "A less elegant but more complex nose reflects plenty of Chablis typicity with its nose of spiced apple, sea breeze, tidal pool, ripe citrus and a touch of the exotic. There is excellent volume to the intense and muscular flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality before concluding in a bitter lemon and anise-suffused finish that offers just a bit more depth. Like the Montée de Tonnerre, this very powerful effort should be capable of rewarding up to a decade of cellaring."
