A brothy sense of richness to Vincent Dauvissat's 2011 Chablis La Forest evokes stock of chicken, clams and mussels, something that would count as utterly anomalous in wine from any other wine region. Chalk segues into white pepper, which, along with a bitter edge of dried herbs, makes for invigorating tactile impingement, even though there is an underlying hint of creaminess to the palpably lees-enriched mid-palate. Similarly, a light lemon freshness complements the richness of this peppery, pungent chowder of Chablis. The finish here milks my salivary glands for all that they are worth. Look for this remarkable libation to perform with versatility and compelling complexity through at least 2020. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Absolutely delightful! Showing some signs of pre mox though.

Saline. Honey suckle. Flinty. Zesty. Long. Ever changing. Real argument that 2011 is a must have vintage for Chablis.

A little tighter, less expressive today, but, on the flip side, a lot of time ahead.
