Antonio Galloni

‘The 2018 Chablis La Forest 1er Cru is a big step up in all dimensions from the preceding 1ers in the cellar. Powerful, rich and also intensely mineral, the Forest is so vivid and so inviting. All the signatures of this site as interpreted by Vincent Dauvissat are ampled up in large-scaled Chablis endowed with tremendous personality and class. In a word: superb.’ – 93-95 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous


Allen Meadows

‘Like the Montée de Tonnerre this is overtly floral in character on the lightly spiced nose that displays additional aromas of mineral reduction, iodine, lemon peel and pear. There is a really lovely sense of verve suffusing the powerful yet reasonably refined larger-scaled flavors that culminate in an almost chewy finish thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract. This isn’t as refined as the Montée de Tonnerre but it’s just as complex and persistent.’ – 91-94 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound


Jasper Morris MW

‘Picked in several passages, the last reaching 14 degrees. The wine is as pale in colour as others in the cellar, with an engaging freshness. In fact this does not come over as too ripe at all. There is significant weight here, white fruit, a touch fleshy at the back, a wine which is biding its time.’ – 90-94 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
