October 12, 2019 - So delicious classic 14 and Dauvissat nose crushed rock mineral salty...
September 11, 2019 - Very good--with impressively dense and electric fruit and blazing acidity--but this is tighter, less complex, and marginally less enjoyable than my previous bottles. Maybe it's shutting down a bit.
September 11, 2019 - Du gros jus ici, superbe.
Vif et frais, c'est complexe et vraiment délicieux.
Salin et citronné avec une belle ampleur.
L'acidité est bien dosée et la finale
interminable sur de relents minéraux.
August 21, 2019 - Fabulous.
August 18, 2019 - Corked. Wine was otherwise youthful and fresh.
July 13, 2019 - premoxed
June 29, 2019 - Strågul farge. Forblir nokså lukket etter en time på karaffel. Subtile toner av hvit frukt, sukkertøy og fat. Veldig solid frukt i munn med noe sødme, men stram alt i alt. Heftig syre som såvidt begynner å integreres. Beskjeden fatbruk. Lang syredrevet finish. God årgang for denne vinen, men er tight og trenger tid.
June 14, 2019 - Chablis tasting in Bodø: This is a good one! A nose of seaside minerals - wet beach and seaweeds. Fresh citrus underneath. Super nice balance and complexity. Rich concentrated lemon and nestle, and what a finish!
May 17, 2019 - Fresh melon on nose, saline, sea shells...really began to sing after an hour...
Btw tasted alongside the ‘04 la forest...while it was noticeably younger, fresher it’s older sibling was really fine
Enjoyed with fresh caught Black Sea bass...
April 26, 2019 - Friday Tasting Group: Farewell to One of the Group's Stalwarts (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): From 9.4 acres of Fôrets farmed by the family; Apparently aged at least a yr in Nevers oak, some barrels > 30 yrs old (with ≈10-15% new);
N: Closed; Minerals, poss salinity, atop apples/lemons? Intensity lurking?
P: LM bod; RNDISH entry with NICE, ALMOST swtish frt met by an elegant, yet bracing, acidity which evolves into a LONG, tangy/swt finish with burgeoning hints of honey. LOVELY stuff for now, but could easily stand cellaring through '20, then going beyond its 10th WITHOUT problem. 95 pts Decanter, 94 ea John Gilman & Vinous (Tanzer), 93 Burghound, + other solid reviews listed on wine-searcher's "Tasting Notes" pg.
