Lovely floral and pear notes on a tight but very ripe and mineral palate. A very energetic premier cru with a lovely combination of aromas and textural richness.
This is more restrained still, indeed so much so that the nose only reluctantly reveals its notes of classic Chablis aromas that include green fruit, iodine, tidal pool and oyster shell. There is outstanding volume and almost painful intensity to the medium-bodied flavors that brim with a fine minerality before concluding in a stony, long and impeccably well-balanced finale where once again a hint of bitter lemon appears. This stunner of a wine will need at least a few years of bottle age to fully harmonize and to become more accessible. I would add that the 2014 version of this wine is perhaps the finest that I have ever seen; the 2010 is incredible but this has the potential to top even that superb effort.
Bright, pale yellow. Lovely perfumed lift to the aromas and flavors of lemon zest, grapefruit and white flowers. Tactile and dense but very closed on the palate, combining a sexy sweetness for the year with powerful salinity and superb depth. Most impressive today on the energetic, slowly mounting, palate-staining finish, which leaves the retronasal passage quivering. Premier cru Chablis from the region's left bank does not get much better than this. (ST)
The Kimmeridgean soil at La Forest (or Forêt) is rich in clay, where Dauvissat sustains a community of older vines, averaging 40 years of age. This 2014 has a complex fruit character, akin to Rainier cherries and star fruit, but the main element of the flavor is chalk, almost floral in its pale white minerality. It’s a classical style of Chablis with notes of green tea and edamame.
