TASTING NOTES

"The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru la Forest has a seductive bouquet of toffee apple, quince, flint and touches of apricot blossom developing over time all with superb delineation. The palate is very well balanced with outstanding energy and tension, perhaps waxy in texture and with a slow burning build that leads to a vibrant quince, marmalade and white pepper finish that seems to lacquer the mouth. What a great Forêts, even if the 2016 is showing even greater potential." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #232

"This is aromatically even more complex if perhaps a bit less elegant with its pure if mildly exotic array of citrus, iodine, tidal pool, white peach and apple aromas. There is excellent punch to the full-bodied and muscular middle weight flavors that possess plenty of mouth coating sap that helps to buffer the moderately firm acid spine. This powerful effort should reward from 6 to 10 years of bottle age and is another in a long line of fine examples of La Forest from Vincent Dauvissat." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 68

"The 2015 Chablis La Forests 1er Cru has a compact, backward bouquet that clearly needs more time. The palate is very intense, displaying a fine bead of acidity, a slightly waxy texture and white peach, nougat and almond notes on the generous finish. Even so, give this two or three years in bottle. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com
