Rene & Vincent Dauvissat Chablis La Forest 1er Cru 2009 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
93 BH / 93+ VM
A notably more complex if more reserved nose offers up classic Chablis aromas that include oyster shell, tidal pool and white flower aromas cut with just a hint of citrus that can also be found on the rich, generous, concentrated and quite powerful medium plus weight flavors that evidence noticeable salinity on the mouth coating, chiseled and impressively persistent finish. Really good stuff here and worth your interest.
Vincent Dauvissat’s fabulous 2009 Chablis La Forest, large-scaled but lively enough to cut through the opulent texture of the tortellini, proved a perfect foil for this rich dish. While it’s still young, I find that this particular vintage offers plenty of early appeal and is drinking quite well now; I doubt I’ll hold on to the bottles resting in my cellar for more than another eight or ten years.
