2018 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat 1er Cru La Forest (750ml)

Chardonnay from Chablis, Burgundy, France


My favorite of the trio, the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru La Forest is another beautiful wine that shows the generosity of this vintage with its open, seamless and medium-bodied style. Leading with plenty of white peach, white currants, flowers, white pepper, and flinty minerality, it has a wonderful sense of purity and precision as well as balance. As with the Vaillons, there’s a distinct salinity to this wine that shows slightly on the nose yet coats the palate on the finish. It has some upfront charm but will gain weight with 3-5 years of bottle age and keep for at least a decade. If drinking any time soon, it needs lots of air.
