Penetrating mineral aromas of crushed stone and oyster shell, with a hint of ripe grapefruit in the background. Wonderfully juicy and vibrant if youthfully taut, offering uncanny intensity and tactility for the vintage. Finishes saline and extremely long, with notes of lime, oatmeal and powdered stone. This palate-staining wine left my salivary glands quivering. Dauvissat does a vendange entier, practically no debourbage and almost no stirring of the lees. 93+

A beautifully layered nose features notes of ripe citrus sea breeze dried flowers and mineral reduction. The caressing flavors possess a highly sophisticated mouth feel built on a base of minerality that adds lift to the tension-filled finish that coats the mouth with acid buffering dry extract. This really fans out on the finale and should reward 6 to 8 years of bottle age. ♥ - Comments: Outstanding

A much more cryptic and savory wine, this has a little grapefruit and some flinty elements, too.

A much more cryptic and savory wine, this has a little grapefruit and some flinty elements, too. The palate’s taut, integrated and fluid; the phenolics have a nice role to play; the acidity is high; and the chalky, white-peach finish is long and even. - Nick Stock

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. I must confess that Dauvissat’s 2011 Chablis 1er Cru La Fôrets completely caught me out, but his wines are notoriously difficult to taste blind when young. The nose is a moody old bugger, like trying to wake up your snoozing grandpa in his comfy chair. Rather than a lack of intensity, I just think this is stubborn and backward. The palate has a twist of bitter lemon on the entry and this is where the action is, with touches of white pepper and dried herbs infusing the finish that still seems insulted that it would be assessed blind. The ignominy! Having forwarded by desultory mark, naturally the wine opens and begins to motor. - Neal Martin
