The 2016 Chablis 1er Cru la Forest is one of the richer, perhaps more decadent premier crus from Dauvissat this year. It is very pure with wild honey, wild heather, flint and chalky scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity and salinity. It has a straight line as Chablis should and does not fan out on the finish but seems to accentuate its core flavors of sea salt, ginger, flint and white pepper, the latter tingling in the mouth long after the wine has departed. This is an astonishingly fine wine from a vineyard that is usually eclipsed by others. Not here.
