2007 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "La Forest"

SKU #1044599 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Dauvissat 2007 Chablis La Forest is gloriously buoyant, open-knit, and generously perfumed, while at the same time possessed of vivid crushed stone and chalk dust all the way through. Suggestions of white truffle and iris waft ethereally throughout, while subtle suggestions of toasted nuts, iodine, clam liquor, and fruit pit add underlying, persistent piquancy. And for all of this wine’s energized and rarified nature, as well as its overt mineral character, it also evinces a subtle and winsome hint of creaminess. This is about as nuanced and rivetingly multi-faceted as premier cru Chablis gets, and it even tasted this way right off the bottling line! Expect at least a decade of enthralling pleasure and intrigue here. (DS) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

Outer quote mark The 2007 La Forest is equally profound, and offers magical potential. The deep, primary and very pure nose offers up a classic, slightly deeper-pitched and more soil inflective nose of apples, lime oil, a bit of grapefruit, flinty soil tones, a touch of hay and a huge base of wet stone minerality as well. On the palate the wine is deep, full and laser-like in its focus, with a rock solid core of fruit, a brilliant base of stony soil tones, vibrant acidity and great structure and cut on the endless, stony finish. This is the quality equivalent of the Les Clos in many good vintages, and should prove to be extremely long-lived for a premier cru if sealed under a good cork. Inner quote mark (1/2009)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of crushed stone, quinine, fennel and flint. Almost painfully intense and uncompromising, with steely yellow fruit and crushed rock flavors conveying an impression of volume without any weight. Like sucking on a mouthful of rocks. Leaves a coating of dusty stone behind on the palate that's hard to scrape off: this seems even stronger after you swallow it! A stunning premier cru that seems destined for a long and graceful evolution in bottle. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (7/2009)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This hasn't really changed all that much aromatically since my initial review except that there is just the initial hint of maturing fruit but otherwise this remains cool, reserved and sophisticated with plenty of the mineral reduction that is so prevalent in classically styled Chablis along with citrus, oyster shell and algae notes. The flavors have softened a bit tough there is still plenty of verve and punch to the intensely mineral-driven flavors that terminate in an explosive finish that goes on and on. I really like the beautiful underlying tension that gives the finish a real sense of energy and the balance here is essentially perfect. And because the balance is so impeccable, this could actually be drunk and enjoyed now though I will keep my remaining bottles for a few more years first. That said, it would not be a crime to open one now. Tasted several times recently with consistent notes. Inner quote mark (5/2017)
