About This Wine

Dauvissat nailed the 2018 vintage.

Vincent Dauvissat compares the vintage to the legendary vintages of 1947 and 1959.

Like 1947 and 1959, 2018 is a riper vintage. What's extraordinary about Dauvissat's 2018s is how they marry tension and power. As is often the case, Forest is one of the stars of the lineup. It is defined by a saline, crushed rock minerality that's finely etched.

The 2018 Forest is simultaneously deeply concentrated and outrageously refined and focused. There's a riveting, detailed minerality and an impressive, lengthy finish.

Along with Raveneau's Butteaux and Montée de Tonnerre, Dauvissat's Forest is the most sought after and ageworthy 1er Cru. There's an incredible complexity and finesse to Dauvissat's Forest that's revealed with time in the cellar.
