Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2019 Oct.)

This is aromatically cooler than the Vaillons with its airy combination of algae, lemon rind and wet stone where the latter element can also be found on the sleek, intense and energetic middle weight plus flavors that are a bit finer than usual, all wrapped in a bone dry and aggressively mineral-driven finale. A classic tightly coiled La Forest that is clearly built-to-age.

Vinous - Score: 91-93 (2018 Aug.)

The 2017 Chablis La Forest 1er Cru was the most reduced of Vincent Dauvissat’s wines from barrel and difficult to read. The palate is more representative: superb tension thanks to a razor-like bead of acidity, very saline in the mouth so you perceive an almost jolting dryness on the finish but paradoxically and enormously long spicy aftertaste. What a cerebral proposition this is.
